How To Lower Child Support In NC
Before we begin our article on how to lower your child support payments in NC, it is important to understand that as a father, it is super responsible to financially support your children and be a part of their daily lives emotionally, psychologically, and physically. This is not an article teaching you how to get out of paying child support or lowering your child support obligation for your benefit.
Under the current child support system in the family courts, the standard is to award mothers custody of children and relegate fathers to non-custodial visitors 4 days a month. And, as a part of this procedure, you will be mandated to pay child support for your child(ren). What few fathers in NC realize is that lowering of child support obligations in NC is not in the best interest of the State of NC and this is why so many fathers in North Carolina are not able to lower their obligation when loss of employment occurs, or some other change occurs. It is imperative to understand that child support in NC is an industry that generates revenue for the State of NC from the US Federal Government for INCREASED child support collection. Basically, for each child support dollar enforced from NC fathers, the State of NC gets back an incentive payment from the government which can then be used to replenish Title IV-D programs like TANF and Medicaid. Additionally, there are plenty of government contractors wanting Title IV-D funds for special projects related to NC Child Support Enforcement. And lastly, who gets super rich off parents in NC fighting in family courts for 18 years? Correct, Lawyers do. Let us be VERY clear, lowering your child support obligation is not an option for NC politicians, judges, and special interest groups for these very well documented reasons.
Our organization believes that these incentives are in fact very good reasons for alienating fathers and their children (as well as family members in the paternal family) so that money can continue to exchange hands. Additionally, we believe that child support should never be payed to another parent and that the best course of action in these matters is to give fathers in NC who want equal physical and legal custody of their children that right. And, when children are with them equally they will support their children. This current system where one parent is elevated to a greater role and where money is involved is a setup for 18 years of fighting that inflicts major damage on children. Let NC Fathers have their children equally, let mothers support their children when they have them, and let fathers support their children when they have them. Again, if your goal is to lower your child support payments but you are unwilling to take on the responsibility of equal parenting time then we cannot support you. If you want to lower or eliminate your child support obligation to the other parents and use your financial obligations for when your kids are with you equally, then we definitely support that.
Lowering Child Support Payments To The Other Parent in NC So You Can Be A Equal Father Will Be No Easy Task
As stated above, there are many reasons why attempting to lower your child supports payments simply will get you nowhere in the NC family courts. Even if your attorney says it is possible, remember that he/she is billing while fighting for this. And, it rarely happens.
The best way to lower your State of NC mandated Child Support is to begin to understand that NC fathers represent greater than 42% of the voting public in NC. When you add in just one step-mothers, paternal grandmother, or sister of a father, you now have 84% of voters in NC. The moment all non-custodial families in NC come together as a united front against politicians, judges, and others who make money off your inability to access and raise your children equally then we assure you things will change, your NC Child Support obligations will be lowered and you and your family can go about the business of supporting your children on your own terms as it should be.
