Unfair and unrealistic enforcement
I am a custodial single mom of three and I sm definitely not against dad's. My boyfriend is a single custodial dad of 2 whose ex has never paid child support. I am opposed to any non-custodial parent that does not pay. I also cannot understand how it is determined that child support cannot be raised unless the non-custodial receives an increase in income. I do not have the option of telling the grocery store, electric company or gas pump that I cannot pay more as prices go up because my rate of pay has not icreased.I think child support should take into consideration a cost of living increase. My ex quit his job of 14 years shortly before we went to court and took a job making less that half of what he did. With 6 years of college degrees and 3 children all he has to pay is 450.00. Now he has left this job and has never covered any medical ins. or expenses.
I have had to take on extra jobs and now work 3 jobs which means I have to pay alot of more taxes which seems very unfair since child support is not taxed and my picking up the slack for him has cost even more. It also takes my time that I do have off from my children. I recently found a posting of my ex on the internet that he wants to be in the movies and he is trying to find work in this field. I suppose that is why he is no longer working as he chases his dream but guess what...I wanted to be a ballerina when I was 7 but then I grew up.
With the slow to no enforcement of the Attorney General he is allowed to play pretend while I get the luxury of working 3 jobs. If anyone out there is hiring a 48 year old fat to star in the movies please hire him. I would like to cut down to 2 jobs. PS he has experience playing a dead beat non caring no count dad.
