Child upport for men safe haven for women?
by: Adam

First, I congratulate you.

My comment which is a little off subject is about the safe haven laws which allow for a parent to abandon their child, while never being legally forced to support the child.

However if a woman decides to keep the child but the man says I don't want a child. He will be forced to pay support for a child he never planned agreed on.

It would appear to be a very lopsided law. The mother can get pregnant, never inform the father of the pregnancy, and then abandon the child. All without the father knowing or agreeing to such a thing.

IOW the father will always be at the mercy of the mothers actions. If a term like "dead beat dad" exists then the safe haven laws has certainly given us it's counterpart; "dead beat moms". The irony is the mom can get into no trouble or ever be financially for being a dead beat.

Would welcome comments, pros and cons.

LOVE IT! I love it when men actually care for their children. There are so many fathers who abdicate their responsibility to their own flesh and blood. He is an example of what a REAL MAN is.

I wish my ex would do more than just pay child support. His kids need their father in their lives.

im so glad to hear that you were able to keep up and your emotions down. we need more men like you out there. I begged my daughters father to seek help to control his anger so we could raise her equally but he seemed interested in doing the exact opposite. I love my husband and he is doing a great job raising my daughter but he is not her bio dad and I wish her bio dad could suck it up and be a better person for her sake. I do not want his support money but if he sets a bad role model image I might need it to put our daughter in counselling. lol. I just wish he was either all in or all out. it sounds like you figured it out and realized an easy way to knock out a major stressor. I give you praise.
