they would start cracking down on it harder? Do you think this should happen to get the gears in motion of making the father/mother pay for their children?

They already do. It's called welfare.

Idk, maybe if the states had to pay they would. They do a decent job in our state.

 No. There would be more single women getting pregnant. Free ride? They'll take it.

They already take things like tax returns, etc, if dads are in arrears...

so I'm a little busy and have gotten quoted a few times so I just wanted to say, I know its never a perfect solution and I'm sorry some people have huge issues with not receiving support. But you dont have to quote me to tell me its not going well. I was simply stating that in many cases, things are taken already by the feds, which is what OP was saying. (: have a nice day.

um not everyone gets welfare and if you work you don't get it. . You can also only get it for a VERY short time. There are mothers who are JUST outside the income limit to get food stamps, TANIF or any other help.

My state sucks. My ex owes over 20K and my son is only 8. He left when DS was 8 months.

Yep and men would start to be more careful about impregnating someone.

In a perfect world that would happen.   My DD's father has been in arrears for the past 15 years.   I have never seen a penny of his tax returns.   They don't suspend his license.   They don't haul him off to jail.   Hell there's NO reprocussion to him whatsoever for not paying.   Domestic Relations is a joke.   When he took off and fled the state, they told me "Not our problem, you need to track him down" how the hell was I supposed to do that, raise my daughter, work 2 jobs to support her (So I wasn't on welfare, wic, and all the other programs people are so quick to  judge single mother's for being on).   I'll find the time, energy and resources to track his sorry ass down... I wouldn't be in the Domestic Relations office asking for child support if I could do all that!   So he got to skate on a solid 3 years of not paying a penny because *I* couldn't track him down, they still didn't touch his tax return.  And never have, probably never will.


ETA... I forgot he is punished... for the THOUSANDS of dollars he owes, he has to pay $25 per month extra on top of the court order he rarely even pays.   The system is broken.   Oh and *I* have to pay domestic relations a yearly fee for their "services".
