I think there ought to be severe penalties for deadbeat parents. My stepdaughter is going through this problem right now. Her husband was a jerk, but he has a good job and can easily afford the support. She, on the other hand, has always worked in low-paying jobs. He has not been paying her like the courts have ordered. She has had times when she can't afford to pay the rent or even buy milk for the girls. The divorce is not final yet, but he's fighting her every step of the way. And after she moved out, he even had another woman with children living with him. I think the needs of his own children should come before the needs of someone else's.

I agree with you 100%, having a divorce that drags on is horrible, I can speak from experience. I used non payment of child support (contempt) as a means to stranglehold my ex until he gave me my divorce, of course in order to get him to sign I had to let him off responsibility for what he owed by that time. Five years later I have sole custody for some of his illegal activity...

Just think of how much money you both spent on legal fees and how much better it would have been to use the money for your child. Makes you sick, doesn't it!

It really does, especially since knowing full well he was to retarded to get a decent job he went and created another child he cannot support and is now trying to use that as a reason to reduce my son's child support. The slimy get slimier.

I think they are greedy and selfish. I would love to see them all go without the things they are making their children go without.

It is pathetic. As was said, if they can bring a child into the world, they are responsible for them. They are so selfish. I think there should be a licence to have kids.

I think that you shouldnt have a child if you cant support them... ppl who are like this should be shot or jailed for the long term!
