Texas Attorney General, What a joke!

by STEPMOTHER OF 3
(TEXAS)

I'm the step mother of three. I have been reading all your stories and comments on this page for the last few days, looking for answers to our up coming CSR case, I have also commented to a few of the stories, and have come to the conclusion that some way both parties have been screwed one way or another.

But what I see the most of is the Non Custodial parents that DO THERE PART big or small are getting treated like Crap from the AG office. Yes their are men and women that don't do their part and yes they should be punished. But the only way WE as Parents can get the system fixed is to make sure that our voices get heard...NEWSPAPERS,TV,RADIO, and MORE BLOGING! For example I was in the court room the day my husband divorced his ex, the lady in front of him was getting divorced with children when the judge asked her about child support she said she didn't want it because her soon to be ex didn't work... But low and behold the AG was their to step in and told her to ask for it.

In my mind that was BS this women was going to get a divorce not wanting CS but the AG stepped in made sure someone was going to be paying his bills as well as the child for the next 18 yrs. Also what pisses me off is how much interest is put on to fathers that have gotten behind for some UNFORSEEN reason, I'm not talking about the ones that have never paid I'm talking about the ones that do there part and fall on bad times and get behind. Most of them people will never get ahead with the interest rates, but the AG won't drop the interest rate because that is how they get their money.

Finally to the mothers that don't work and collect a check.... You all need to be BITCH SLAPED, I mean WHO MADE YOU GOD, THIS WORLD DON"T OWE YOU SHIT! Your children are a gift from GOD. That you USE as a paycheck, or as the AG office thinks our children are CREDIT CARDS (true fact was said) and it makes me sick. I had one friend tell me, when he and his ex broke up the last words out of her mouth was "WELL AT LEAST I GET CHILD SUPPORT OUT OF YOU"!(she doesn't have a job lives of the system) SO WE ALL NEED TO GET OUR VOICES HEARD TO MAKE SURE THAT THE SYSTEM WORKS FOR BOTH PARTIES. 50/50 are responsible for the children doesn't matter who lives with who.

So both parties SHOULD BE WORKING TO GIVE THE CHILD A BETTER LIFE, AND THE TEXAS AG NEEDS TO STOP HARRASSING THE PEOPLE THAT DO THEIR PART AND GO AFTER THE ONES THAT DON'T!!!!! BECAUSE AS OF RIGHT NOW IT'S A JOKE!!!!

Lady, you sound like a bitter stepparent who is upset that her husband is having to pay child support. I'm so tired of hearing this same old sob story from people like you about custodial parents using CS for themselves. You don't have a clue. And yes, there should be interest accrued when the noncustodial parent doesn't pay or gets behind. You get a late payment fee if your late on your monthly bills, don't you? When the noncustodial parent fails to fulfill his financial responsibility that puts the other parent in a bind as well. And let me tell you something else, regardless of what was written in the court order about paying CS on a certain date each month, the AG still gives the noncustodial parent 30 days to pay. What is the purpose of any putting down a date in the order if it's not going to be followed or enforced.

Texas Attorney General is BULLSHIT
by: Anonymous

THey say they are there for the best interest of the child. WHAT A JOKE!!!! They are there to collect the largest amount they can get no matter where the child is at.

My husband's son came to live with him 14 months ago all the while paying the mother 500 a month. When he sought help from the attorney general to stop his support to her and to help get her to start supporting their child, they pretty much told him that they can't do much about it. Because they will get a bigger percentage of his 500 that he gives to a mother who no longer has the child then they would get if she was ordered to pay 300 to him. So why bother changing their bottom line. SO FORGET THE SUPPORT OF THE CHILD. THEY COULD CARELESS AND SHOULD BE TAKING OUT OF BUSINESS. texas needs to change their laws, these mothers are living off of money and not providing it to the children. Texas does not have alimony, but that's basically what my husband is paying his ex while he raises the kid.

Love Self Worth
by: Anonymous

Why would you even marry an obviously broke man who was cold enough to have your adulterous ass in the courtroom with him? If he'll do it with you, he'll do it to you.
Should his children starve because he's move on with his life? He'll starve yours too when he's done with you.
Get some self respect & stop blogging for a loser!

I AGREE!!!!!!!!!!!!
by: RHONDA

THEY SAY THEY ARE OUT FOR THE KIDS MORE LIKE FOR THE WOMEN. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE DADS RIGHTS WHEN THEY STARTED PUTTING INTEREST ON CHILD SUPPORT? I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW ARE THE FATHERS BUYING THERE CHILDREN OR ARE THEY JUST SUPPOSE TO BE PAYING FOR HALF OF THERE SUPPORT? MY HUSBAND ORIGINALLY OWED 20,000 , HE HAS PAYED 17,000 THE ATTORNEY GENERAL SAYS HE STILL OWES 27,000 PLUS THE 150.00 A MONTH THEY CHARGE ON INTEREST, THATS 24,000 AND COUNTING IN INTEREST. THEY HAVE HIS WAGES GARNISHED, AND NOW AS OF LAST YEAR THEY HAVE WENT AFTER OUR INCOME TAX THEY TOOK HALF OF MY CHILD TAX CREDIT ALL THE EARNED INCOME CREDIT HALF OF OUR REBATE CHECK ALL OF WHICH WE QUALIFY FOR MY 5 AND 6 YR OLD DAUGHTER AND OUR 4 YR OLD SON.

You hit the nail on the head. I have written several posts to this site. Although I try to be impartial, it makes me mad when non-custodial parents get screwed for doing (or trying to) the right thing. Yes, the AG has taken this crap too far and the system lets them. As for writing to newspapers, you would be hard pressed in finding one with the courage to publish such an article. They fear any lawsuit the AG might bring against them. Unfortunatly, they will piss off the wrong person someday and he may go postal on them. The system needs some serious changing, but all those legal bastards and feminist pigs keep the law in their favor at the expense of broken families.

REGARDING AG "WHAT A JOKE."
by: You Say It Loud

THIS IS A RESPONSE TO AG WHAT A JOKE. That's right on the money. All these men and women who don't work or do their parts GET OFF YOUR BUTT AND CONTRIBUTE TOO. Any body can make a child but it takes hard work, effort, time, patience, love, devotion, and ALSO A JOB FOR INCOME TO RAISE A CHILD. It's not WE working parents job to pay for child(ren). AG IS JUST A BIG FAT JOKE!!!!!!! PARENTS WHO AREN'T BEING TREATED EQUAL NEED TO BE HEARD........
