What state has the best child support laws (and enforces them)?
Alright ladies I've heard all kinds of horror stories of states not doing what they should but let's put it to paper- where are the best and worst? Where should the expecting mom move LOL (just kidding)!
California provides you with a lawyer when enforcing child support.
They have on the books that they will take away a driver license and passport and if non-payment continues they can go to jail. (Of course your case worker affects this- mine said she'd take the block off my ex if he paid even a small portion but I have a very crappy worker.)
They also have a law saying (paraphrasing here) that if a man has a good paying job and quits it or is fired his support cannot be lowered if he takes a lesser job. (For example if a doctor quits and takes a job flipping burgers guess who is still paying big bucks?)
Sadly- child support is based off of how much custody each parent has (meaning- the dad's then file for visitation so they don't have to pay) and of course how much each parent makes.
There is a minimum for support for english speaking average joes- and that is based off minimum wage (in my area it's about $322 a month).
