If the paying parent (mom OR dad) can't pay the full amount with causing a personal financial hardship, are they given leniency? I can't see the Court enforcing someone to pay beyond their means and force them to live on the street or starve themselves.
On the other hand if they did, it would be harder to find a homeless person. Maybe thats why they are allowed to pay what they can afford? Any truth in that?
When my DH paid child support he was told that they can take no more than 55% of his paycheck. That's exactly how much they took form him.......he got a lawyer and fought it since he also had a wife and 2 other children to support. The courts didn't care. If he was short on his weekly child support his ex would call the courts and they would in turn send him a letter telling him that if it wasn't paid he could end up in jail. His child support was taken out of his paycheck by his employer......he had nothing to do with how much came out. If less than the amount came out it was because legally they can't take more than that 55%. The courts told him that if the full child support doesn't come out he must send in the rest of it.........I totally agree with child support BUT I think it's ridicules that the person paying then struggles to pay his/her own bills and take care of their own family.

Next question overall
Do you think many of the questions asked here are lies or hoaxes?
