If a father decides he doesn't want to see his child, do you think he should, have to pay? What if its been 5 to 10 years and he still decides not to see them? Should he have to pay then?

Yes, unless he were to sign off his rights completely. Sometimes I think people would be better off doing the latter.

He needs to sign over his rights when the child is born to avoid having to support the kid.

I think those who refuse to have a relationship with their kids should have to pay double.

 Yes, BOTH parents need to contribute financially. The stork didn't bring them.

 Yes

Just because he wants to stop being a dad doesnt mean the kids stop wanting food, shelter or clothes

I think if you want to spread your legs for someone who obviously has no values or takes no responsability then its your fault for getting knocked up in the first place. I think certain men should get a special tattoo on their head that shows they dont pay child support.. just to make it a little more obvious for the oblivious.

Of course he should have to pay. If he didnt' want a child, he should have made that decision before having sex.
