Child Support Laws....in Texas
by No one Known
I think the Texas State laws of child support are unfair. My husband pays child support to his ex girlfriend and she has it made. 20% is a lot of income to be going to a child. His baby's mom complains that the child support barely covered day care. However, in my opinion the money should only cover half. She is half responsible if not more than half being that the woman should be the smart one in the situation as they are the one's that can get pregnant. Not only does she get his money in child support, her school was paid for and the state helped her out with food and housing just because she was an irresponsible woman. In my opinion the people who have no children and have waited till marriage should have more help from the state. Now his baby's mother is married and still receive a large sum of money. When the women gets married the percent should drop to 5% and before she gets married 10% but no 20%. It's good to know that his daughter that he sees less than his kids that live with him probably get more of his money. There is no way that a child uses 20% of the dads income and 20% of the moms which is what the 20% is saying. Because it is equally both their responsibility/fault not just the mans.
