License

Why would the law restrict a persons license if it is needed to get back and forth to work. Seems as if they want the fathers to be in jail. I think that is the most ridicolous law out there. How can they pay if they cant get to work? Just saying.

Custodial Parent

by Dena

I got papers in the mail saying that my ex was doing a modification of child support to lower payments. I filled out the papers and sent them in. I called to check on the matter with child support services and I was told that because he didn't fill out his paper work it was denied. So this was computer generated? I feel by denying me, due to him not filing out the paper is helping "dead beat dads" because they have no repercussions. So why is my county wasting money on these generated forms if the forms aren't going to do any good.

Ten years and counting

by Mother of another One
(Montague County Tx)

My deadbeat ex hasn't paid ANY child support in ten years. My daughter is his FIFTH child - none of which he has raised or supported.

I was also a child of a divorce and saw how my own father cheated my sisters and I out of a decent childhood by only paying a tiny part of what he should have paid and using the legal system to physically abuse both my mother and my sisters and me.

The system is broken - it doesn't work. Lawyers are so crooked and dishonest for the most part and judges are simply inhuman.

Fathers having a say in child support

by Alanna

Im an 18 year old female, I dont have any children but im writing this for all the fathers out there that didnt want a baby and have to pay child support. I have a male friends who recently got caught up by a young female who clamed she was on the pill and had no way of getting pregant but now she is pregant and making his life hell, to be honest I dont see why he needs to pay child support, yes he got her pregnant but she also said that couldnt happen, something needs to be done about child support. This girl has been pregant muiltiple times to many different people, she has told me on multiple occasions its only for the money, that in my eyes doesnt deserve child support! There should be an age limit on when your aloud to recieve child support, if your going to put yourself in this position at a young age and make someone elses life hell, this chick is 16 and has been pregnant before, like I said, you shouldnt be aloud to recieve child support until 18, than exleast in that time you have time to realise the consequnces.

I have two young children, I let him get the kids when he feels like it however, he was behind in child support and so his taxes were garnished. He still owes at least 700 dollars in back child support. I stay on child support but they are slow he claims he has a job if thats the case then why don't my children receive any income? Mind you he lies alot dont know what my options are.
