The injustice that the men of America face with the ideal of Child Support leaves me asking the question of what is the problem with the Child Support System... Let me be the first to say that I am not writing because I don't want to pay, but because of the insane way that the Courts Systems have implemented legislation to create a tool that cripple the average men of America boggles my mind. The ideal that all a woman has to say "that's your child " Essentially sets a course in a mans life that is nothing short of a roller coaster ride. All that is done under the scope of what is best for the child, not the childern. You see if you start another family they have to suffer because of the income going to take care of the first child. Wow!
Unfortunately the things I am going to say are shocking but true.Take for instances Francisco Rodriguez who owed more than $10,000 in back child support payments. http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/07/11/paternity.cases/index.htmlA paternity case involving the 15-year-old girl who he thought was his biological daughter, according to DNA revealed she was not his daughter. Yet the state of Florida is continuing to enforce that he pay $305 a month to support his alleged daughter. He even spent a night in jail because of his delinquent payments.
So why did this happen? Because he missed his deadline to legally contest paternity. That's because, he says, the paperwork didn't reach him until after the deadline had passed!Without fail when a man does not appear in Child Support Court it is automatically assumed that he just did not want to appear... It is also assumed that he received a notice to appear in Court. Of course no certified mail is ever sent, or a receipt received. Although in the same situation that a woman does not appear in Child Support Court CSC, the assumption is she did not receive her paper work and the Court date needs to be rescheduled. It goes with out saying that the Courts are Bias and feel that any injustice that is implemented on the man is of his own doing. So regardless of the essential facts that it took two people to make a baby, the only thing that the CSC recognizes that the man should have know better and all he gets he deserves!
I love the ideal of taking care of my children, but what is not taken into consideration is that women of today are making more money than men are... Yet society still beats on the men that are trying and let the men that are not slide by.
We the men of America are not asking for a break or a hand out. Just a chance to succeeded. All comments are welcomed, if you have a horror story of your injustice please tell. The sad reality is if it does not make the news it must not be to bad!
