Gwendolyn: He makes $600,000 an episode. 20 episodes a year divided by 12 months and he makes 1,050,000 a month. That's without any other income.
Bhruic: It certainly is unreasonable. The "he's rich, so it's ok" defense just doesn't cut it.
Gwendolyn: He is paying .07% of his income from Two and a Half Men a month to help maintain a home for his son to visit and who may be placed back there at any time. That's like a guy who makes $60,000 handing over $35 each month. I don't think that's completely unreasonable.
Mangoose: There are no specific stipulations about looking for work and receiving any form of support payment.
SauceIT: jst3p:The only guys I know personally who feel like they get shafted by the system allowed it to happen by not asserting and/or fighting for their rights.FARK YOU! Going through some seriously biased crap in both CT and MA courts. If things are better in CO, great for you but don't, for one second, think that applies everywhere or that men griping about being shafted is their fault.So what is it with you? Willfully ignorant or just trolling?
MmmmBacon: The real lesson here: It kinda sucks to be Jon Cryer
jst3p: joint custody
people: The vast majority of men are not deadbeats. A large percentage of the ones that are are basically destitute.
Mike Chewbacca: And the vast majority of divorced moms aren't greedy biatches looking to screw their exes.
MmmmBacon: The real lesson here: It kinda sucks to be Jon Cryer a divorced father.
jst3p: people: jst3p: In divorce, until the mid-nineteenth century, fathers had a near absolute right to custody, regardless of circumstances.There you go.To be fair, I don't think going back to treating women and children like property is the way to go either.Let me ask you something, if "primary care giver" isn't the right way to determine custody, what would be?
jst3p: Show me a case where the father has custody or even joint custody, the mother has greater income and she does not pay child support, then you will have a point. Show me more than one and you might have a valid point.
jst3p: it just happens more often than not that the mom is the primary care giver.
MacWizard: people: Bhruic: It certainly is unreasonable. The "he's rich, so it's ok" defense just doesn't cut it.Its also assuming that he is going to make this money for the rest of his life. He isn't. This is his peak earning time.Not for the rest of his life, just for the next 10 years or so.
GAT_00: Yes, beat the victim! That's how we should do it in America! We certainly know everything we need to know from a press release turned into a news story!
Mangoose: Child support can include helping a non-custodial parent maintain an adequate residency for interactions with the child, or for future interactions with the child.
