Child Support: Poverty Is No Excuse

child support momMen are here to make things easy for me. I’ve worked hard all my life and earned my stripes. In fact, I don’t think about my ex, except when I talk about him. Sometimes, that is quite a lot. That is because I hate him.

It’s not that he really has done anything to me. He just failed to meet my expectations, my high standards. That’s why I’m an atheist. Nobody meets my high standards. I enjoy bragging and writing about my accomplishments. The New York Times wants to publish an article of my valuable feelings based on the people I know. I have no real facts to justify my feelings, but I’m a woman of strong feelings nonetheless.

kezia-willingham-bow-wowSome non-custodial parents take care of their parents on weekends. I should be so lucky. That’s because I’m a narcissist, a real headcase. I’ve chased him off, and just about any man with good sense that I can’t lure over for a quickie. What’s more, I’m not certain that my kids belong to that worthless ex of mine. He’s that sorry. Hillary Clinton and Feds don’t care. Neither does Texas or most any other state in the union – just as long as they can fill their coffers and gain more power. The Constitution was a good beginning, but we know better now.

Everyone should be tough on these selfish bastards, those deadbeats. There is simply no excuse for their inability to pay. They deserve prison. It’s too good for them. Cats and dogs are much better, easier to get along with. Besides, I’m all my kids need. They’re certain of that fact too.

The Darkness of Societal Parental Alienation in Childcare

In our modern culture, parental alienation has become a scourge that has been largely supported by the government and family courts. This sociopathy has been considered “just a part of life,” which has crept into the entire scope of society. When it comes to childcare, it really is up to women to allow men into what has previously been their domain, especially as more and more women choose the marketplace to fulfill their lives. A great place to start is to get rid of exclusionary practices that cater exclusively to moms or that alienate parents and family from children in any way.

If you are connected with such a class, consider getting the name changed to one that is more welcoming, like “Toddler Time” or “Toddler and Me” — names that include not only dads but grandparents and other caregivers as well. It’s small changes like this that, over the long run, will help alter attitudes and perceptions about our roles as men and women in our society.

The Road to Good Intentions: Free Attorneys

Democrat Senator Joe Biden is working to employ new domestic violence legislation which portends to cost state and federal government millions and further prejudice the law against honest fathers. The road to hell is paved with good intentions and Senator Biden is no exception.

Biden’s latest domestic violence bill is the National Domestic Violence Volunteer Attorney Network Act, which amends Biden’s Violence Against Women Act to create an extensive network of volunteer attorneys to help abused women. The attorneys would provide free legal help in forging divorce or separation agreements and in winning child custody.

S.1515 will do some good in aiding abused low-income women. The problem is that the bill will also greatly exacerbate the already widespread problem of false domestic violence claims being used to strip decent, loving fathers of custody of their children. Bill S1515 has a price tag of 55.5 million over 5 years. When Senator Biden was confronted with the cost of the bill, he said that he had not considered the cost. Mothers and teary-eyed feminist programmers would have you believe that no cost is too great for justice.

Naturally, there is no mechanism within the bill to distinguish between false accusations and legitimate ones. This remains the achilles heel of the entire system that continues to be ignored.

Fox zeroes in on 'Bad Dads'

Fox Network zeroes in on ‘Bad Dads’

Check out the dangerous and subversive mentality of this show…

After embracing the dark side of reality television with its marriage-busting hit “The Moment of Truth,” Fox’s newest project taps the power of its unscripted division for the forces of good.

The network has ordered a pilot from 3Ball Productions, in which an avenger of penniless single mothers hunts down deadbeat dads and forces them to pay child support.

Jim Durham, director of the National Child Support Center, functions as a sort of “Dog the Bounty Hunter” for tracking deadbeats. In the pilot, a financially destitute mom is contrasted with her wealthy ex-husband, who is living the high life. Durham confronts the man at his country club to shake him down in front his friends. It’s ambush reality TV — but for a noble cause.

“(Durham) calls them on the phone and gives them the chance to do the right thing,” said executive producer JD Roth (“The Biggest Loser,” “Beauty and the Geek”). “Of course, those calls are never met with anything but yelling. Then he goes into their life, finds out what kind of assets they have and makes their lives miserable — foreclose on their house, repossess their car. He will squeeze them until the women get paid.”

Roth sold the idea to Fox with the title “Deadbeat Dads.” But Fox president of alternative entertainment Mike Darnell famously concocts his own catchy titles for his shows. (“Nothing but the Truth” became “The Moment of Truth,” and “Do You Remember 5th Grade?” morphed into “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?”) Darnell has rechristened “Deadbeat Dads” with the very-Fox working title “Bad Dads.”

Sluggish government agencies often fail to persuade financially liable fathers to pay child support. As of 2006, the nation’s cumulative uncollected child support stood at about $105 billion, according to U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. Last year’s federal budget cuts could make the problem even worse, potentially adding about $11 billion in uncollected child support over the next 10 years.

Durham’s National Child Support Center is one of several collection agencies that serve as a last resort for neglected single mothers. Some critics say such companies do more harm than good. Child support collectors have been accused of charging steep fees and using ultra-aggressive tactics. Durham bills his clients 34% of whatever he collects.

Roth counters that Durham’s clients typically feel so abandoned by the court system that they’re relieved to get any money at all. Plus, he said Durham is the only collector who extracts interest owed on the outstanding debt, so his clients often receive more money than if the absent dads had simply paid their bills.

As for the aggressive tactics, child support is not considered a debt per se, but an order of the court. Collectors are therefore not subject to following the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, which regulates what tactics a collection agency can employ to collect a debt.

“I’m hoping that eventually this show changes how courts see deadbeat dads and how moms have to deal with it,” Roth said.

If greenlighted to series, “Bad Dads” will provide Fox a fresh take on the law enforcement reality show, a genre the network pioneered with such Saturday night staples as “Cops” and “America’s Most Wanted.”

“I’ve seen ‘Cops,’ and I want to watch more than a crack addict with his pants around his ankles running away from a police car,” Roth said. “These guys owe money, and they should pay.”

Child Support Audit Find Fathers Wrongly Punished

Glenn Sacks has an interesting factual commentary. A recent Missouri child support auditor’s finding that 27% of the state’s 240,000 child support cases have incorrect balances. Some of the errors have gone unfixed for nearly a decade, and have led to enforcement action against innocent men. Clearly, the federal enforcement of the Bradley Amendment depends on state records for accuracy.

Mothers Without Fathers: Court Accountability

Killings on Sunday appeared to add another grim chapter to a growing casebook of children slain by mothers. The two fathers of the children said they had tried through the courts to gain custody. He said that he had recently been in contact with a county child protective services agency and that a representative was to have visited Ms. Brewer’s apartment on Friday. It was unclear if that visit took place.
NY Times Article
The article contains terrible conclusive journalism for the New York Times and is highly speculative about many facts. Still, the difficulty for fathers to see their children along the relunctance and lack of accountability of the court system is clear to see. Had the court system been more open-minded with the intentions of the fathers, the children would likely still be alive. Naturally, this is an assumption. What is not an assumption is the fact that men are regarded as guilty until proven innocent in the court system. Men enjoy few of the rights and a great deal of the financial responsibility where children are concerned, whether the law is correct or parenthood is truly established. Unconstitutional federal law in Title V and the Bradley Amendment adds fuel to fire against fathers that often face incredible challenges in their ability to support their children, much less see them.
