Unfair child support laws

Messages Sent So Far
After children turn 5 they are in school and those women who collect child support sit at home doing nothing when they could be working part time to help support there children. It use to be the male as the main source of income, not anymore, we live in tough economic times, where it takes two in the household to support children. Why should those women stay at home when they could be working. The law should be added to so that those women don't have several babies and then wait for the child support to come in. They should at least be given some finacial responsibility as well as the father. After there youngest turns 5 they should should be required to work part-time to collect there child support. Nobody should have a free ride.

How about this? My daughter will be 4 in June 2017. She has lived with me since she was a month old. Her mom just walked away from her. The state ordered ME to pay HER weekly even after we told the judge my daughter lives with ME and is on MY insurance. I have been trying to fight it for the past 3 and a half years now with no luck. She has had absolutely NO contact with me and made NO effort to be a part of our daughter's life, yet she gets to collect money?! What the actual ****! This money is for my DAUGHTER who lives with ME!

this is just gross that moms sit at home while doing nothing and the father has to go and work even though he doesnt have his kids and and we all know that the entire legal system is pro woman and is against men and woman in most situations are the primary aggressor in domestic violence situations even though the man always gets sent to jail

I don't agree with this at all>>Mother's should not be forced to go to work when they have kids in primary school! I think once they go to middle school then the moms could and should help support their kids!

Child support is incredibly sexist, why aren't feminists all over this? It is looked at from a view of "the woman should not work she should be home caring for the child. The man should be the soul provider for the family." That's not how we live in today's society.

I agree with this. My ex does not work because not only does she get child support from me she is also getting ssi from the state and she wants to take me to court for more money and my child is almost 18 .This is not fair. I know my responsibility to my son but she is well enough to work while he is in school. There is nothing I can do but just let her have her way with the system. Does anyone have any advise? This is in Texas

fathers should be able to claim child support on taxes, the mom can and she gets a tax bonus, the laws cater to women. This needs addressed as men our car ins, and many other things cost more due to our sex.
