Do you think that women who take advantage of child support will get theirs in the end?

I mean there are some women out there that can't wait for the CS check.

I once knew an acquaintance who had 6 kids from (ea.) all were from different fathers and lived off of CS.

This is sad.

  • Not sure how you "take advantage" of money that is necessary to raise your children? It's hard to not count on it. Kids are expensive! If you are upset b/c you are not receiving yours, make sure you file the court order w/ the probate court in case he inherits any $$$.

  • I 'take advantage of it.

    I buy my child clothing, food, and books.

    It helps him keep a roof over his head and his room warm.

    I helps pay for the extra therapy he needs.

    I am PROUD to 'take advantage' of the support I receive.

    That's what I was thinking. If they have a child then they are entitled to their check. If the Dad/Mom didn't want to pay child support then the shouldn't have had a baby. Period.

    hope so..bm is on dh if she hasn't gotten the child support check when it's supposed to come in..and that's nearly 600 a month, and yet sd is always in raggedy looking clothes and smells of sweat when we get her (which isn't very often), and when dh takes a weekend trip down there.

    Well, it seemed like a rhetorical question to me. What do you mean "get theirs"? Get their what? What sort of punishment are you hoping for for them
