Deadbeat dads are really contemptuous and make me very sad.  I don't care if he's only got $20 in his pocket.  Go do right by your kid.  Loser.

Loser! Why anyone would have a child with him is beyond me.
Also, people that base their lives around FB are in the same category.

That's like $250 whole dollars. 

Or, put another way, if your flash cash features anything other than Benjamins, you probably aren't as much of a pimp as you think you are.

MagSeven: SultanofSchwing: Mr_Fabulous: Two things...

1. Subby: "Looking cool: Posting a Facebook photo showing you rolling in a pile of cash...."

The fark? No.

2. Lots of racist shiatheads in this thread.

/that is all
//carry on

Is it still considered racism when the stereotype and real life collide in a perfect moment?

Well when you have around 12+ comments that only state the perps race with no relevance or "funny", or even a statement besides "Is he black? Hur hur hur......" you have to think things might be a tad bit racist around here. The funniest part about this is that when some park ranger in Zaire saves someone from getting eaten by a lion there will be no "Was he black?" comments. It's only "was he black" when it's a shiatty American stereotype. I guess some people love it when black people fark up. Then they want to celebrate it publicly. Have fun everyone! Black people fark up just as often as everyone else, so the party should go on for quite a bit! WHOOO!

I have it on the highest authority that it's not racism if you don't oppress members of the race(s) you consider to be inferior.

And yes, people are gratified when they guess correctly.  Funny how many were able to.

Ah, yes, child support -- the State's way of forcing men to give women what they get out of marriage (money) without having to actually be married.

After all, modern life just wouldn't be the same if weren't reflexively assumed that women can do no wrong.

ForrestRump: I currently pay just under 800/ month for my two boys. I don't feel extorted but I do find it funny that in Florida child support is not tied to visitation. Since I can't afford to drag my ex into court I do not get to see my kids because she decided to take them from me. Yay for Florida! I get the honor of continuing this stupid cycle for 5 and 7 years respectively. This is precisely what I get for thinking with my dick.

/I would understand if there was any reason on Earth for her doing so aside from her just being a vengeful biatch.

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!

Clint_Torres: Not trolling, but how do we, or the DA, know that it is actually his money? For all we know, he could have borrowed money from his friends to make those stupid ass pictures. Which is what I imagine a lot of people that pose for those pictures do.

Also, a big fat facepalm for everyone involved if your crack investigative techniques include Facebook snooping.

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.

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.

If he's that excited about $240, maybe he really can't afford his child support.

pravetz8c: Women hate men who don't pay child support.

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.
