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.

In response to your comment that I beleive he owes me every time I need a little more money... I will tell you where I am coming from... Someone that willing quit his job and took one paying far less on purpose paid $450.00 monthly for 3 children. He now is without unemployment and is trying to be a Movie Star. As far as my wanting more money... I am sure that even you should be able to figure out thatis very little support for 3 children. Before you decide that I am greedy perhaps you should realize that he was required to carry insurance and pay half of the medical bills to which he has provided neither. Before I put my children on my insurance at an extra 400 a month I paid all medical bills for them with cash to the tune of over ten thousand dollars over an 8 year period. I also could have received spousal support at the time of my divorce and turned it down. Now my ex quits his job and decides he wants to be a movie star and I am fully supporting OUR children. My comment about more money was due to the fact that I do not have an option about paying rising costs unless I get a raise so why should non-custodial parents not see an increase unless they get a raise? You want to know where I am coming from? From my 3 jobs that I just finished working so I can support our children while he plays make beleive. I think by your bitter tone that you probably arent paying your child support either.. Now why don't you get a grip..

i am all for non custodial parents help support their children and paying support but unsure where you live because in sacramento if you don't pay you lose your license and can go to jail if this is your idea of fair justice then i feel no sympathy dads who want to help are pittied against not only an unjust system but some women who would just love to make their chosen mates life miserable in order so they can start a new life with new men is sad i don't think if you make more money now than when you were together means you should pay more to another couple to raise your children if you make less than that, you should be considred how can you expect someone to pay support when they themselves can barely afford a place to stay hell just lockin him up then they can owe you and the courts and for complaining about taxes have you ever seen the interest they charge on arrears people owing a few thousand can end up being in debt the rest of life and a criminal record and no future thanxs to people trying to get every last dime they can get a joke if you ask me good luck not all fathers are dead beats while you figure out how to penalize us more consider the fact that the father of the children you chose to bear children with doesn't deserve your hatred and idea of depriving him of a life , you can smile with the fact when he's locked up tell your children he couldn't affords payment your dads bad and a loser you can ruin their relationship if you want but one day those children will want answers so consider that before you cry to penalize a system which is already robbin fathers of their rightsand their children
