No Child Support does not cater to fathers
My fiancee' was divorced and he was ignored when his daughter was living with him and her mother was not ready to accept motherhood. So he filed twice and each time, they conveniently never received his application. I watched my fiancee and his mother sacrifice everything for his daughter while his daughters mother didn't even buy Christmas Gifts. So she finally got her act together and asked to keep their daughter more often. So he agreed because he never wanted to take his daughter from her and even on the Divorce they kept it joint custody. So he kept paying for everything while she stayed with her mother 4 days out of the week.
Well, my fiancee' and his ex-wife got into a argument because she got caught spending his money that was meant for his daughter by slipping and calling him asking for her money. He threatened and told her if he found out she was using their daughter to get extra money out of him, he was taking her back because that is not the reason why she should be staying. She retaliated by saying do it if you want to "I'll put you on Child support".
And the next day, she did it and without my fiancee' having a court date by hiring a lawyer and making it a private case. Child support division didn't care about side of the story, charged him for back child support from the time she was born, asking for all this proof to prove his daughter lived with him and when we send it after faxing, it never comes through and our son is over a year and we are struggling just to get it reduced after filing a appeal several times, and I'm unemployed so we have been struggling because Child support is taking away from us. No one is listening to him and a CS Representative had the nerve to tell him "we tend to favor the mother" after he asked why they didn't ask her for proof that he was a dead beat and why didn't they try to hear his side. I hate Child support, not every father is a dead beat.
