24. Buddy, the court is not gender neutral...
Edited on Fri Jan-14-05 10:45 AM by KingChicken
In a perfect world you would be right, however the "scale" is tiped towards the mother, by default.

It takes months to adjust payments, and each time there are court fees. It doesen't work out in the long run.

He pays for health expenses, clothing, daycare when it's necessary, and all the small expenses when it comes to raising kids, and of course food.

What people are suggesting is that he should pay 100% of what he doesnt need for his immediate needs, while the mother lives far above her means, with the availability of family to help her out. Who do you think is going to be responsible for the child's college expense? He has no choice, the mother has him by the balls, if he doesnt pay all she has to do is quit her job and request that support payments be increased to make up for the income.
