My solution for dead beat dads is a mandatory vasectomy. Prevents history from repeating itself.

While it's not known exactly whose money Robinson had displayed in his Facebook photos, or how he might have come to acquire such sums

Such sums? That looks to be around $300. He probably read that advice column the bankers wrote on how to save money and is having his ho iron his shirts instead of sending them out.

I have never understood these sorts of clowns.  What is the point of posing next to a bit of money? Are they trying to imply they are rich or some such thing?  If so, why do they usually pose with such little money? Its usually a couple hundred or couple thousand at most.  Everyone has at least that. If they want to convince me and others that they are rich they should be posing with at least a few million dollars.

Those of us saddled with having to pick up his slack should be allow to kick him in the nuts once, each of us, every month he is late.

I don't see how the post on Facebook has anything to do with not paying child support.

Facebook isn't 'Real Life TM'.  It's a projection of what we want people to see.  Most people, particularly poor people, want to be seen as being successful (for whatever they view successful to be).  It looks like somewhere between $100-$200 in that picture anyway, even on welfare or minimum wage, it'd be expected for someone to have access to $200.

It doesn't say anything about how much he earns, spends, or what child support he can afford.  All it means is, at one point in time, he was seen standing near $200.  Big f***in deal.  I could be 50k in debt, unemployed, failing out of college - but take a picture with 8k-10k after getting my student loan check.

I hate anyone who doesn't pay child support. I hate dead people who leave unpaid child support.

I also hate custodial parents who think it's their right to refrain from applying for child support, for any reason.

You can pay something.  You can fill out the paperwork to secure your child's birthright.  If you don't, I hate you.

My stupid biotch sister-in-law won't get a job, she also won't collect child support from the fathers of her two older kids. Luckily, my brother is a real stupid idiot moron who rebounded from a bad relationship to impregnate her and marry her in 4 months time. For all his lack of intelligence, he is a good earner, so there is that - she's not on public assistance at least. I consider supporting his stepdaughters his own idiot tax.

Realistically it's likely the result of him chasing his check at the local payday center (and losing 30% of the check to 'surcharges').  He took it out cash, when home, took the picture, and then had to pay out the money to his landlord and other expenses.  About the only thing the DA really has on him is liquor and other non essentials in the photos.  Although the guy can always claim they were leftovers from a BYOB style party.

What the DA really good out of this deal was the media coverage since the media loves a good "moron on Facebook story" and the DA gets some "think of the children" media cred.

Sounds like my ex.  When I got together with him he had children from another marriage.  I made sure that even if his work was slow, his ex got paid (with my money if need be).  Flash forward 17 years later, we are getting divorce, he  and I have a child together.  He decides that he is entitled to Spousal support, which conveniently is the same amount of money that I would have been paid child support.  He has not paid (nor is he required to) one dime of support for our child.  It's fine though, I'd hate to have to drag his ass to court to get it out of him, what would just piss me off more.

Are you kidding?  Facebook sleuthing is very efficient and productive use of tax dollars.

Even if the money turns out not to be his, the pic provides probable cause to get into his account and look for evidence of hidden assets.

Its been said, over and over again, how she's ruining her own children's future by not collecting support on their behalf. Her oldest daughter is quite intelligent and could probably be college bound and if she started now, she might collect enough for some tuition by the time she gets into school (she's 13.) My inclination is that if she collects child support, she'd probably have to stop hiding from him and he'd have the opportunity to be in his daughter's life. From what I understand, he was a pretty upstanding dude (her mother told my brother this) and would probably force the issue with visitation. She uses the lack of formal child support and custody arrangements to extort money from her younger daughter's father. I have the impression that the younger one's father is in the US illegally, so going to family court might be off putting to him and cause him concerns, so if she wants money, she demands it and he coughs it up. He also does all transport - which includes air travel - for the summer visits.

I keep telling my brother, you can't trust her, you're in a bad place if she turns around on you like she's turned around on the other girls' fathers. The only comfort I take is in that she is married to my brother and whenever they end up divorced, he'll have to make proper custody arrangements for his daughter as part of the divorce. I think the other two got themselves in this position by being non-custodial parents who aren't married to the custodial parent. I am hoping a divorce lawyer could preserve my brother's rights and access to his child while also ensuring she is adequately supported should he not retain full custody of her... Its a pretty sick thing, but when your child is born within a year of meeting your spouse, your marriage does not scream long term union built on trust, common interests and true love.

Complicated.  If I was in your brother's shoes, I'd seek a guardian ad litem to represent her kids in an application for child support.  Of course, I'm nowhere near like your brother; that's just how strongly I feel about this issue.  I'd gladly fark a marriage to get justice for those kids even though they're not mine

I'll probably never be in such shoes because the instant I learned that a woman didn't pursue support for her kids, the relationship would be terminated with prejudice.

You need to live in a better state. Our (Los Angeles) family courts are pretty reasonable about working with dads & moms who owe support and have their pay cut because of the rotten economy. The judges live here too. Assuming the payor parents make an effort to come in and explain to the attorneys why they can't make their payments and not just let it slide. Or come into court and blame it on the mom's bad record-keeping. Or say "Hey, my boss said he'd send my check straight to her." Or wait ten years to challenge paternity on the kid they've been fighting over since its birth. (All excuses I heard at Support Services)

Come in, talk to the judge, and have a better excuse than you have to support your three new kids so you can't pay for the three kids with your first wife, and the judge will understand. And don't wait till your arrearage is in six digits.
