Child Support, Dead beat parents?

More press came out about how involved the Feds and other agencies are trying hard to collect unpaid child support. There are so many parents who do not pay, and this should not be an issue, because if parents cared, and took responsibility for their children, we would live in a perfect world.
Guess what? We don’t.
Now, looking at the flip side, what if the parent who is suppose to pay just does not have the funds, maybe due to job loss, or income has been decreased, or they could be ill, or a number of justified reasons why they are not taking care of their obligation. How do we handle that? It is tough to look at both sides but it is a must.
Here is another thought, what about all those grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings and friends who are caring for other people’s children, and never receive any help financially? How do they get compensated for all they do to help someone in need, or who has just surrendered their care to others?
This is very disturbing when you think about it.

Most people in their Retirement years, have already raised their families, and now here they are having to raise their children’s children.
What is our world coming too?
I really do not understand some of these situations, due to the fact if someone does not want children there are so many ways to prevent that, and in today’s world, no excuse for anyone to bare a child if they do not want one, unless it is under tragic circumstances like rape. So the real question is, if you do have a child, then why would you not want to take care of it?
Financial distress? Illness? What?

I would like to hear more about this subject and get a few more opinions.

  1. I just want to let people know not to give up just because the child becomes of age….my daughter was almost 26 when I finally got the attorney general of Texas to go after her dead beat dad for the thousands he owed. He was just lazy and would not work; he had no excuse for not paying his child support. The sad thing is, that this is true in most cases. But so often the non-custodial parent thinks they do not owe the custodial parent anything. In my case, this was true. He did not understand (or too big an idiot to admit) that if I bought groceries or made the house payment or the light bill, it was for his child. Well,now my daughter is 30, he is on disability (so I have heard), and he is having to pay what he owes. He calls me names for taking part of his money, but he is the one who did not do what he was supposed to do. Now my daughter feels she has no dad, and will not have anything to do with him because of his attitude toward paying what he owes and toward her. These parents need to think more about the child than themselves. They need to quit being selfish and think about the life they brought into this world. The world does not owe you, you owe the world. Take care of your debt to the child. I know that in some cases not paying can not be helped; but there are other ways to not be a dead beat.
    On a different note, this is a good spot to vent. Thank you ladies for giving it to us.
