This is another question we get asked a lot!
Yes, we do want to pay child support. Our belief is the equal time we have with our children we will provide all the necessities children need, while their mothers/fathers provide when the children are with them.
We believe both parents should pay for educational, medical, and other costs like that.
Our issue is we are FORCED, by a Federal Agency to pay them so that they can divert the money to special programs and social services and we are told to keep our mouths shut and not ask for equal time with our kids.
In reality, child support payments do not come anywhere CLOSE to what it takes to raise a child(ren). We will be spending more money with our children when we have them 50% of the time. This is not about Money, this about about CONTROL by Federal Agencies, Judges, Legislators, and some Custodial Parents.
Children will have far greater opportunities and resources than any amount of child support payments can achieve when non-custodial families have EQUAL access to their children.
