I don't have the issue of my ex not letting me see my kids. My issue is I am Working 6 days a week 12-14 hrs a day so I can afford my child support along with my personal bills. This meaning I barely get to see my kids. My girlfriend and I we have a 2year old together, with my long hours it makes our lives and relationship very difficult. We have neerly separated several times. I don't understand how We as fathers are ordered to pay child support, thru a court system, and Mothers are not held accountable for where the money goes. My kids come over with Holy, stained clothing, and shoes. Every school year and winter I am forced to buy them clothing and shoes. If I don't they will get next to nothing. She now has a boyfriend that has 4 kids so there is his 4 kids and my 2 kids living in a 3 bedroom house. I think that it's a unfair system, don't get me wrong I don't mind taking care of my responsiblitie but lets make it more fair. If I am forced to work all these hours to make it, how is that benefiting my children? They still barely get to see me and when they do I am really tired from all the hours Im forced to put in. Also Why are mothers not held accountable for how the money is being spent. I think if you ask Most "Dead Beat" Dads Why they dont pay child support the top three reasons would be
1. Never get to see children.
2. Can't afford it
3. When its paid it don't go for children
My thought on the Child support system why dont they put 1/3 to 1/2 tworads a college fund, or some kind of CD that can't be touched till the child is 18. Then who cares where the other 1/2 goes you at least know that your child will get something helpful, something that will make there future more valuable.
I might be totaly off base but maybe im not. You tell me?
