/Paying $600/month

///Washington state is a bad place to be a man

My dad never paid child support, but I'd think it would be extortion if he was required to have paid $600/mo.


I pay a few dollars short of $600 myself for my son.

Got phudged by PA court system.

I wanted my son, I solely provided, I did the chores, I did everything but sit on my assplaying video games.

14 more years of the biotch tax.

And you know what- fark everyone who says 'i hate dead beat dads'. fark you. Ever lost your job? Been laid off? Had your hours cut? Had your pay cut because corporate 'murica has to have profits at your expense? No? Then shut up. Cause until you try and have it happen and see how the courts treat you, you have no idea. I hate family courts.

You wanna share? The day my brother's baby was born, I found out because my SIL posted pictures of her on Facebook. Within 7 minutes of her birth. Guess who I unfriended because it was better for my own sanity? Oh, and my niece has 22 Godparents, but I'm not one of them because I'm not Catholic.

The thing I regret most is not buying him a plane ticket to "come visit" me after he broke up with that girlfriend. And by come visit, I mean have some sense talked into him by my husband about what it takes to be in a stable adult relationship. Instead, he got the wisdom of a bored married friend who thinks its helpful to get over your broken heart by finding random squish. He doesn't realize that my brother isn't that kind of person, he gets entangled with complicated women and complicates his life with their complicatedness.

Gyrfalcon: 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)


Holy shiat, that's no way to enforce child support!  In Colorado, payments must go through the Family Support Registry, so there's independent verification of what's been paid.  The FSR screwed up a couple of times in my 16 year's experience with it, but the errors got fixed promptly with minimal effort (double-checked records; once I had to produce a canceled check).

Modifications had to go through court; the FSR even sent a check back to me because it was for more than the court order.  But mods were easy and DIY.  The ex and I  swapped 1040s each year, used a state-supplied spreadsheet to recalculate obligations, filled out the form and mailed it in.  Got a new order by return mail and went on.

I guess it only works for adults who love their kids more than they hate each other.

My dad never paid child support, but I'd think it would be extortion if he was required to have paid $600/mo.


Where they get you is "shared expenses".

Dad made 28K, Mom made 90K.  After taxes, this became 24K and 70K.   Dad paid Mom $4300 in child support for partial support of 2 kids.  He's down to 20K.

At that point, Mom sends over bills.  Every summer camp got split right down the middle.  Marching Band, split.  Medical Expenses, split.  Birthday cards, split.  Gifts to teachers, split.  Dad has no option but to pay, and no ability to control the spending.  Dad ends up paying Mom to the tune of 10K a year in child support and shared expenses and basically going flat broke.

/It could be worse.  One of my uncles' had his ex-wife bill him for private school while sending the kids to public school.

Well, godparents have to teach the kid to be Catholic if the parents aren't around to do so.  If you were a man, you wouldn't have been tapped to breastfeed, either.

I'm prepared to excuse women any social rudeness when they're in labor.  It's a busy time.

That is a really shiatty thing to deal with and I'm sorry that is your reality, but I disagree entirely with the idea of linking visitation to support. My cousin's POS ex thought that if he ignored his daughter and never had a relationship with her that he shouldn't owe support. So she was unsupported and abandoned on top of it. That kind of thinking is the really unfortunate inverse of your problem. I hope your vengeful biatch gets what is coming to her and your boys aren't too hurt by this mess she's created of their life though, because I fully believe that the obstructing parent who has vengeance in their heart will be left to suffer once their children learn the truth. I've seen it happen with people I grew up with, they thought their fathers were deadbeats or didn't want them, but learned later it was their mothers who kept them away from their father and their mothers are suffering for that.

My point is, she has no sense when it comes to others. Picking two godparents? Cool, picking 22? Greedy. They all pony up and give gifts for the honor of being one of them. But my brother's already made it clear that if something happens to them, I would raise their daughter and its in his will as such. None of them would engage in a fight with me over custody either, I can promise that.

Being in labor means maybe you focus on what you're doing, not posting pictures on Facebook. That's just attention whoring.

I agree she's being enabled, I've said it over and over again to him, but he's not prone to common sense. If he's willing to support someone else's children, I guess that's his idiot tax. At least we're not all paying for it, right?

BarkingUnicorn: I guess it only works for adults who love their kids more than they hate each other.


Only takes one... My ex wife has literally said to me that she'll do anything to cause as much trouble and hardship in my life as she possibly can. She succeeded for a long time in a number of ways and the Friend of the Court helped her do it. She would do things like lie to them and tell them I was making about four times more than I actually was making and they would arbitrarily change my support amount to reflect the amount she said I made. I go in to challenge it and they wouldn't even look at my pay stubs and information. Took about eight months to get them to look at it and by then I was deep in the arrearages. When they finally did admit that the information they were given was inaccurate they refused to change the amount they said I owed. They actually charged me more in child support than I made that year... I didn't even miss paying... they just wanted more than I had to give. I've been paying that bullshiat down for ages and keep up with the payments even though my ex makes twice what my wife and I make put together right now and doesn't really need the money.

Beyond that she denied my visitations for extended periods of time and wouldn't let me even speak to my daughter. She tried convincing my daughter that I didn't love her, would say horrible and untrue things to my daughter about me constantly, and even sent her Dad and brother to my house to hassle me and my family (I have a wife and kids) on numerous occasions. None of my complaints were listened to at all by the courts and they would do absolutely nothing to help me for a very long time.

I have a really good judge now. He's fair and honest and has put a stop to the bullshiat my ex was pulling. Luckily my case stays with this judge and for now, things are going well. He literally told my ex at the last court hearing that she "could not interfere with my absolute right to have a meaningful and loving relationship" with my daughter and if she did try to cause trouble that he would immediately grant me full custody of my daughter (we have joint-legal custody). Since then, my ex has not tried to cause problems, stopped lying about everything, and I now get to see my daughter on a regular basis without interference.

Essentially... until I got a good male judge (the female judges in the past wouldn't even let me explain my side of things most of the time), I was getting screwed by the system. Things are much better now that my ex isn't given a free pass to screw me over with her every whim.

I don't mind a fair and honest child support system... I just really dislike how often it gets abused by a vindictive ex spouse who's only goal is to ruin your life.

What I meant is that the state doesn't really care about my rights, per se. They want to make sure the taxpayers aren't footing the bill for my Crotch Fruit. I get that. But if they actually cared about the childs well being, making sure the non custodial parent can at least get some kind of visitation would be nice, but that's a whole separate filing fee, lawyer fee etc...

I just want to see my kids. I already had to fight a bogus 25K "in the rears" that about broke me. Small victories, I guess.

Child support does not buy visitation in any State.  It only appears that way superficially because obligations are calculated, in part, based on how much time the child spends in each parent's custody.  That's formally determined by a visitation order that is typically granted at the same time child support is ordered. "No visitation" actually results in the highest possible child support obligation for the non-custodial parent.

If you have a visitation order, it can be enforced.  If you don't have one, you can get one (if there's no good reason to deny it).  I suggest that you find a local guardian ad litem  and ask how to go about doing whatever's needed.  Every Florida district court has a GAL Program, and you should be able to get a referral to a GAL or two through the family court clerk.

One possibility is to get  a GAL appointed for the child to represent his/her interest in visitation.  You may not have to bear the entire cost of the GAL. You can ask the court to split it between the parents or find some other way to pay it.

Good luck.  Persevere for your kids' sake!

She has an excellent sense of what others will let her get away with, unfortunately.  She also has a sense for others' susceptibility to flattery, like the honor of being chosen as godparent.  "She has no sense" underestimates her and helps her get away with more.

She wasn't in labor 7 minutes after giving birth.  Really, I don't  think a FB announcement of a birth is out of line.  The timing was logical.

We're not paying, but all of the kids are.  They may be provided for adequately, but they do not have all of the resources to which they are entitled. What your brother provides for her kids is not provided for the others. What Father 2 owes is missing. All of the kids are getting cheated.

If it's just because mom's a lazy coont, then she needs a fire lit under her ass.  Not a dime for her personal wants until she applies for child support.  Food and shelter, nothing more.

Be glad you aren't in the UK.  A divorced father has no right to see his children if his ex-wife decides to not let him see them.  No "what's best for the children" protection as with most states in the US.  He still has to pay child support.

Well in WI there's two factors at play here:

1.  They automatically ding your paycheck for child support owed.  So if he "didn't have the resources" that means he was claiming he didn't have a job and was working under the table.  Or he was bouncing between jobs so often they couldn't make the paperwork stick.
2.  They'll happily throw your ass in work-release jail until you get a job and get at least reasonably caught up.  Maybe Milwaukee County can't keep up with all the deadbeat dads but the surrounding counties are decent (not great) at it.  And of course if you're in work-release you have to pay "rent" too, auto-withdrawn of course, which just means it takes longer to get caught up.

A lot of men called "deadbeat dads" honestly can't find work or have taken a job that pays less.  The family courts don't give a shiat if you really can't make more.  Your past income is an indication of your earnings potential and they can't be bothered with unimportant things like a farked up economy and 10% unemployment.

I've heard from quite a few men that they got similar treatments. I too would like to see some statistical data on that. 

Another thing I would like to see (but don't expect it to happen) is accountability on the side of the person receiving the support money. Something that shows how that money was spent to ensure that it is actually being applied to the care of the child.

I don't think you are grasping the true (albeit unstated) purpose of "family law."

And I use the term "law" loosely, since there are no objective standards.

Are these the same idiots that tried to get that law passed to fire people who owe income taxes?

Because the best way to get money from somebody is to make sure they are unable to get an income.

BarkingUnicorn: ImpatientlyUnsympathetic: BarkingUnicorn: ImpatientlyUnsympathetic: You wanna share? The day my brother's baby was born, I found out because my SIL posted pictures of her on Facebook. Within 7 minutes of her birth. Guess who I unfriended because it was better for my own sanity? Oh, and my niece has 22 Godparents, but I'm not one of them because I'm not Catholic.

Well, godparents have to teach the kid to be Catholic if the parents aren't around to do so.  If you were a man, you wouldn't have been tapped to breastfeed, either.

I'm prepared to excuse women any social rudeness when they're in labor.  It's a busy time.

My outrage is for your SIL's laziness, which is enabled by those around her.  Sounds like she's worked out a secure but reprehensible career strategy.

My point is, she has no sense when it comes to others. Picking two godparents? Cool, picking 22? Greedy. They all pony up and give gifts for the honor of being one of them. But my brother's already made it clear that if something happens to them, I would raise their daughter and its in his will as such. None of them would engage in a fight with me over custody either, I can promise that.

Being in labor means maybe you focus on what you're doing, not posting pictures on Facebook. That's just attention whoring.

I agree she's being enabled, I've said it over and over again to him, but he's not prone to common sense. If he's willing to support someone else's children, I guess that's his idiot tax. At least we're not all paying for it, right?

She has an excellent sense of what others will let her get away with, unfortunately.  She also has a sense for others' susceptibility to flattery, like the honor of being chosen as godparent.  "She has no sense" underestimates her and helps her get away with more.

She wasn't in labor 7 minutes after giving birth.  Really, I don't  think a FB announcement of a birth is out of line.  The timing was logical.

We're not paying, but all of the kids are.  They may be provi ...


I have no patience for people that feel the need to post every detail of their lives on FB. 7 minutes after giving birth? Sh*tty parent that should be paying attention to their child and themselves. People like that will most likely post pics of the child's first happy meal while they choke on it and then sue.
