Why Doesn't Arizona Enforce Child Support
(Bullhead City, USA)
I get frustrated because my ex is one of these that claims he's self employed, but has no work. He posts pictures of great vacations with the new wife and step kids, beautiful new boats, etc...but claims he can't help with his 4 biological kids.
I have a great job that should afford the basics and even extras but because I pay his share of the bills so that my kids can eat and have electricity, I barely make it check to check...often having to borrow money.
DCSE says they will enforce support, but don't do much. Self employment is the new black for deadbeat dads. Why not attach their bank accounts? And if I placed an ad naming him a deadbeat, is that considered slander???
All I know, is that something has to be done.
On the other hand...my fiance's ex-wife told DCSE that he never paid a dime in support. They billed him for 12 grand. Then she admitted she lied and the bill was dropped to 500 dollars, which he promtly paid. There always these warning about what can happen if you defraud the state, and yet, nothing happened. She fakes SSI and lives off of welfare and our state just allows this kind of fraud. Why?
He is a hard worker who pays his support.
I am a hard worker that gets no support.
Is it true that good guys finish last?
There is something wrong with this system is fraudulent wives and deadbeat dads get away with draining the system.
And meanwhile...I continue to pay taxes.
Do I have to go on welfare to get some help here?
In the meantime, I have an asthmatic child who needs monthly meds that I have started selling home appliances to pay for. I get no state aid. No child support. Few if any tax breaks. It seems that you are punished for being a hard working American these days.
DCSE needs to stand for what it was created for. Look what other states are doing. Enforce jail time. ACTUALLY take away their business licenses.
Maybe if child support was enforced we wouldn't have so many people on welfare and the state wouldn't be losing funds.
