I cant see this happening but I just have to ask. Does anybody have to pay child support that equals more than their income. Now the moral part. What is more important giving money to the X for child support, or giving direct support to the child in the form of simple parenting. In my observations here in Canada family law is interested in the money first and foremost before dealing with any other issues. This process takes more than a year, giving the person with custody the right to withhold the child from the payor. this sounds like legalized extortion on the govs part and kidnapping for the X. what do you think.

I feel that child support should reflect only a certain amount of the ex's salary. In reality they do need to be able to afford their own basic necessities. As for whether I feel that that direct parenting is better. I do agree that in the end that being a good parent to a child is the foremost responsiblility of a parent. But at the same time that does include making sure your child has enough food and the basic necessitites that your child needs.
