I know there are deadbeat fathers out there who don’t pay support, who don’t care. And that is who the laws are trying to protect; the single mothers who really are struggling that can't get any help from the fathers. But it’s unfortunate that even the fathers who pay support, who love their children, who want to help support them are getting screwed by lazy mothers who don’t want to work. They take full advantage of the laws to benefit themselves, not the children.
One would wonder what a single mother who lives for free with her parents, who collects $1,900 a month for support, who has applied for her kids to receive free lunch at school, who removed her kids from daycare over 6 months ago, who received free divorce counsel from start to finish, and who doesn’t work, would spend $1,900 month on? Every single week, without fail, there is the reminder to “don’t forget my check”. She will be receiving a total of $54,000 before the end of December for the property settlement and all child support arrears. Why would this woman get off of her ass and work? Where is the motivation to work? What is even more angering? Her boyfriend doesn’t work either. I wonder how he supports his three kids and how he gets money to do…anything?
But money isn’t enough. No, she has to try to make him miserable other ways too.
Why would a woman feel the need to be such a way?
