Texas Child support Laws CROOKED!

In most other states, for instance Ohio which my ex-husband was order to pay support, takes into account BOTH parents income when calculating support. As I feel it should be. But not Texas. They take 20% off the top of the non-custodial parent regardless of their situation and regardless of how well off the mother is. So my husband pays his support as always. When he retired his x agreed to a reduced amount that was 20% of his retirement pay at the time and it was signed and became a court order.


When her current husbands child support went up a couple hundred dollars cause he had retired and got a high paying job ontop of his retirement she decided she wanted more money from my husband since he now receives disability as well. It has only been a year. She told him she just wanted what she was entitled to. However, I dont receive support for my two children and my husband and I have two of our own together.

So we have 4 kids in our home we support, plus the child support for his one son with his x. So now we hear she has just had all her carpet replaced with hardwood floors, just bought a brand new truck AND an camper trailer!!!! BUT, she wants more money from us to help her support ONE kid while we are supporting FIVE. Under the current law when his child support is recalculated he will owe about $120 more dollars per month.

The child doesnt need this money for support, and it seems luducris to me that tax payers are paying for this to review and adjusted amount to be processed just to satisfy her greed! Not to mention when he needed a review when he retired the AG told him he had to get a lawyer and do it on his own which he did, but when she wanted it reveiwed one year later she got the AG to process the reveiw for her for free!!!! Why is that legal???

I am willing to pay what is fair
by: Dr P

I got divorced and gave the family home and thousands/ month to my ex wife to pay for the kids. She does not work, moved her boyfriend in BEFORE the divorce was even finalized, and still has the nerve to ask me for anything expensive for the kids...because she knows I will do anything for them. She embezzles their money to support her lifesytle of sloth. I on the other hand, paid my own way through school, earning 3 different degrees without taking a single loan. But, the moment I get a little extra money, she is ready to go to court to "get what is fair". Not to mention, the kids have benefitted from travelling all over on vacations spent with me, WHILE I am paying support to her in the Summer. I a not a violent person...but really...the court almost encourages violence with its culture of reckless discrimination against good fathers. Deadbeat dads: I say castrate them. But the honest ones trying to do the right thing for their kids are being systematically bled dry by manipulative former spouses.

Thank YOU!!
by: Anonymous

Can I just say thank you so very much!! I've sat by for thirteen years and watch my husband suffer by the hands of the Texas Child Support Laws. His ex in the begin even harassed us with allegation of abuse three times in one year of course all found void of substance. When we asked for help we were always told to get a lawyer, but just like all of you when she wanted more money she just picked up the phone and the ag started the process... judge acted like my husband was a dead beat dad. He had never missed a payment and always had insurance on him totaling over 700 a month. Come on people! Where's the justice in this... and please for the lady who said that these men need to take reponsibility... THEY ARE!!! $62,000 is what my husband has had to pay to date and of course that not over so that is repsonsibility and that's not the extra karate crap, and summer vactaions, and summer school or school supplies THAT WE PAY FOR... do I need to go on!! This is obviously a forum for fathers and their wives to vent... NOW don't get me wrong Dead Beat Dad's get a life... pay up and do your part... and maybe the system will stop crapping on the rest of the Fathers that CARE FOR THEIR CHILDREN!!!

We live in Oklahoma now and I hated moving here... hated leaving Texas but after every letter from the Texas ag office I'm think Oklahoma is looking like a better place to me...

We've had him living here for the past year and the witch didn't even have to pay child support. My husband just wanted to help his son.... but medical was expected... do you think she paid... HELL NO!!!! NOT ONE FREAKIN DIME!! OKAY Mrs. Reponsbility were's your comment there... how is that fair... Now he wants to go back to Mom and she says not without support and medical... are you kidding me... and funny she gives the same line my husband's first born should be his RESPONSBILITY too... REALLY!!! So its okay when we were raising him plus my three for a year with absoultely now help but now its my husband RESPONSBILITY... did I mention she makes MORE MONEY THEN US TOGETHER!!!

TEXAS FIX YOUR FREAKING LAWS!!!

what about the men who choos not to work?
by: Anonymous

I feel for some of the other writers (fathers), im a custodial parent, my ex has a job- enough to live freely the way he enjoys- drinking, smoking, partying the night away- ive been trying to the the AG to serve him for a year now and we finally have a court date! he rarely pays his child support- its less that $200 a month but he always has party money. i hope the judge is as rough on him as you all say she will be. im tired of letting him think that my child is a novelty. he barely sees him and has never onced taken him on over a weekend even though he has the right to. im glad he doesnt though because hes a horrible influence on a child.

Overhaul Child Support
by: Anonymous

Someone please,please for Gods sake Overhaul the child support law!!!!!!! I losf my job in the plant, then went on unemployment. They took almost all of my money. I can't even afford to see a doctor because they take all I make. Now my unemployment has run out and I haven't been able to pay for 3 months, and I just received a letter from texas att. Generals office that if I don't pay a certain amount by nov 29 I go to jail. That's what the child suppt law does to us fathers. It jails you for an inability to pay!!! My ex still won't let me see my boys. Its been 6 years. She should be jailed for that. There is no help for dads who love their kids, against c.s.

texas child support laws is legal way of steeling
by: listener

I agree with all of you. Non of us have any money left over even to feed our own family while the "the Bitch" (in I mean Bitch because she is only thinking of her self and not her children)spend all this money on new vehicals ever 6 months buying harley davidson motorcycles for his low life boy friend. When by the end of the week the kids in our home are eating potatoes and drinking water cuz we don't even have enough money for Kool-Aid we would even be happy with cheap food coloring. There is something seriously wrong with these child support laws. Yes i understand that the parent that who has custody of the kids need money and help to support the children. But why don't they make them show proof of what they are spending the money on for the children. Some one need to do something about it becuse year after year more and more people are getting away with it. and to our luck it happens to be people who are shelfish self centered ecotistic no good for nothing human beings who don't know what is like to work hard for their money. generation after generation are just getting to the point where they want the money just put in their hands. My man had the kids for 1 whole year she just dropped off all three kids and split. later comes back fights custody (we ended up with a judge that goes for the woman no matter what, she had 11 police reports of domestic violence and neglet.) kids are given to here that same day and my man ends up being sued 15,000 dollars for back pay child support. we cant afford a lawyer, and found out her boyfriend son is 18 and recently moved in the home with the daughters. my man's daughter fears for her life their at the home but is afraid of her own mother our hands are tied. I we worry for her to she cries every time we see her not wanting to go back. any one who reads this please respond with some advice we have tried everything. My man had to close down his own bussines becuase it was nto cutting it anymore he just got a job. and now they are taking 50% one for the mother of 3kids and 1 for the other ex. when he only getting paid 8.40 an hour any advice please e-mail to rehtsesamra@yahoo.com

Bexar is a Crooked Little County
by: David Botts

Indeed, the child support system in Bexar County, Texas is heavily prejudiced toward women.

But what do you expect from a court system where a female District Attorney, Susan Reed, as well as a judge, Monica Guerrero, get away with flying on stolen airline vouchers?

What do you expect from a local Republican Party that puts Susan Reed up on a pedestal to say the pledge of allegiance at a Senatorial Convention when she dishonors her office and the practice of law?

I had to walk out of that Senatorial Convention in disgust!

AG only advocates money not bonding
by: Anonymous

I agree with you..my fiances ex has been denying us visitation for 4 months and when we try and go to AG or court house they tell us we need a lawyer but just this week she decides that she wants to take him to court for unpaid child support and she already has a court date. We told her if you can't afford to take care of her we will take her. My fiance may not have money but I do and have been willing to take care of her. It's not fair that the non-compliance of the court orders only apply to the father. How come she doesnt go to jail for denying visitation, or providing us with medical documents.. we didnt even know that his daughter has been in therapy.

Father's Responsibility
by: Anonymous

This is very upsetting to me. You think that just because you and your husband are having difficulty making ends meet, his first child should be penalized? He conceived that child and regardless of how hard up he is or how many more kids he has, Texas law mandates that he provide for the children he has fathered. Also, just because she earns a good living doesn't justify limiting the father's support of his own child. It is not her fault that you and your husband are having a hard time.

Men get screwed in Texas
by: Anonymous

You did not state what state you are living in. How ever If it is Texas . Be grateful that is all it is . Because in Texas and especially in Bexar county . You will get laid over the barrel. Until someone gets the system overhauled . Men in this country will continue to get abused by the system . Good luck.
