LA producer/ Deadbeat father that continues to disappoint his daughter...
What a joke this guy is...and as I am reading all the other stories that sound oh too familiar on this site and others, I get more and more angry and realize the ones that TRULY lose here are the children.
My daughter and I live in Arizona now, she is 12 years old, and has a so called "wanna be" dad that has been failing from the get go. Never married (thank god) and from the day I told him I was pregnant, he wanted nothing to do with it until the issue of child support came up after he realized I actually had her and she was his. He has hurt her over and over and over by not showing up to visits, and now after getting a little older and smarter (all on her own I might add as I have never wanted to talk bad about him directly to her) has realized what a flake and liar he is. And you should hear some of the lies he comes up with...I can't tell you how many times I've heard he was in the hospital or somebody he knows died...at this point I would think everyone he knows is dead. LOL. My daughter actually said to me last night that she doesn't care anymore if she sees him or doesn't, because she can't handle hurting...how SAD is that!!! But to really put the icing on the cake, he drives a new Volvo, lives in LA as a producer, wears nice clothes, travels all over, parties it up, buys expensive clothes for her she doesn't need, but CAN'T afford child support!! He has intermittently paid over the past 12 years, sometimes not for 6 or more months, sometimes it?s $100/month, and rarely the $500 it?s supposed to be, but oddly enough some will go into my account the day or few before he is traveling out here to visit her. I have let it slide for 12 years, and given him chance after chance to prove himself both as an emotional and fiscal responsible father, because the energy and fighting I just don't have in me after spending years in court over custody and $75,000 in attorney's fees that my parents sold their house to help me pay for, BUT I am not going to let it slide anymore. I calculated that in arrears he owes with interest almost $100,000 (and both the state of CA and AZ are the toughest on deadbeat dad laws/child support) so I am officially filing for a new order to be assessed, as well as back child support, and the guy can sit in jail and have a job there until he can pay it off....it's what he deserves after not being a financially responsible parental party in his daughter's life, not to mention hurting my daughter for a dozen years. What a shame.
He is the epitome of a dead beat father, and I look forward to the system getting a hold of him! In addition to keeping my daughter safe from his lies and pain he causes her.....
karma comes around.
