Texas Attorney General, What a joke!
by STEPMOTHER OF 3
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!!!!
