The State of Texas on Child Support are worse then the Mafia
by Broke in Dallas
My x lived in another state She moved to Texas for 6 months and moved again and again. She filed child support which I paid to her in another state and came directley from my pay check. I had a car accident and was not working for nine(9) months so I got behind.
The State of Texas arrested me put me on probation,community service, classes, and dues of 150.00 per month and charged me with a felony and now I owe 40,0000 dollars in back child support? All the payments to her I made for 15 years they said do not count. I have paid and paid not to go to jail. My kids are grown and have been for three years now.
The interest paid to Texas is as much as the payment. My lawyer was a work of art and as bad as the system this was his negociation or go to jail. After I paid him $3000.00 so he can throw me under the bus. I have tried to get help but as lawyers go they always want there $3000.00 up front (like I have it to give) Wish I did.
So seeing that Texas is taking 70% of my income here I am broke and working for the State of Texas.
How is this legal I do not know. Keep in mind the system is made of of nothing but lawyers and do not help anyone but there own pocket books on our misery. Why is it they these women do not have to work? How much of ths money goes to the children and not there shopping sprees and cars and there new husband who enjoys your hard work and money while you live like a homeless person
I feel the State is out of control and they act as if they are Hitler. They are not helping anyone but the State so they can justify there jobs and salary's (because "they are helping the poor mothers"
The money should go to a fund for the children and used for there needs. I sorry isn't that what this is all about? So here is hw it goes the State of Texas makes as much as the worthless mothers who are to lazy to work and the State of Texas wins lottery off every man who made the mistake of having children with a worthless lazy -----who figured out the system.
Something needs to be done for the men in Texas when it comes to child support. Maybe make the women get a job and not live off welfare and wait for the check in the mail. I did not make these children alone and there care should not be ALL on me. Maybe a fund of 300.00 per month from the mother and 300.00 from the dad and they the mothers can go jail if they do not pay. The fund should go directley to the children and the money in vouchers for the childs needs not the mothers needs. A card with there identy like a debit card for certain items. That would mean the State wuld have to earn there money and think of a better sysytem. God no, you mean a government worker actually has to work? The system has to be changed not designed for the State to make money off anyone. I have not been a dead beat dad and feel this is being run like a dictatorship.
