If a person is divorced and has to pay child support, isn't that still providing for his family? If you are the christian and he is not, wouldn't you prefer to have the money coming in for the kids? regardless to if it is through the courts?
I understand the question as being simple, but I'm not sure why the answer has to be so biblical. This is a new era, not 2000 years ago when men and women in the bible lived a different kind of life. The bible is our blue print, not everything will be written in there for us to find... we are to use wisdom and pray for guidance. I hope you get the answer you're looking for. This was just my spin on the question.
