Malicious compliance kinda.

Happened to my big bro. Went from giving her about 1500.00 a month, went to court, went down to 900.00. She was quite spiteful. However most men I know who go through this, that “500.00” definitely wasn’t every month. It was more like every few months and diapers in between. 230.00 or 500.00…. still not enough imho.

I’m not sure what’s so hilarious about this. The only loser in the situation is the child, period. All unmarried parents should have legal custody and child support orders in place; it can solve a lot of issues.

On another note – why you as a parent are OK with only providing $238 a month for a whole child you helped create will always baffle me. But eh, that’s why I ain’t a baby mama I guess.

The US child support system is the single biggest reason I got a vasectomy. I used to want kids, but I was beaten over the head by how one sided and fucked up the life of a father is if/when anything goes sideways. Fuck that. I’ll live my best life child free.

sounds like he thought he was doing the bare minimum and couldn’t believe his luck when he found out that the minimum is much lower

Love how this depicts a father willing to assist in his daughter’s quality of life. Except when his ex gets stupid. Then the daughter all of the sudden becomes less of a concern and now she gets less assistance for her quality of life…

The ex is stupid, we get it. Why does the daughter have to suffer for this though?

Btw I come from a broken family. Mom and dad split when I was 2. Dad barely ever paid child support and my mom never wanted to force him to do so, so she let it slide. She did this even though it made it difficult for her to pay for things. I grew up knowing my father didn’t care enough about me to help pay for me to do sports, get school supplies, etc. Instead me, my autistic brother, my mom, and my grandma all had to make things work without that assistance.

Screw this guy for doing this to his daughter regardless of what his ex did.

Welcome to every county outside of EU. I’m sorry but this just seems unjust and should be outlawed.

$238 a month required by law is better than $500 as long as he feels the goodwill though.

It’s not like he couldn’t choose to pay for more than $238 required of him if he wanted to. It’s his child.

My dad couldn’t/wouldn’t hold a steady job for most of my childhood.

After YEARS of $0.00, my mom finally took him to court for child support to garnish whatever wages he earned and he didn’t finish paying it off until me and my sister were in our mid-20’s. She didn’t want to, but she’d given him YEARS to step up and do it without being forced.

My dad isn’t abusive or anything. I love him, he’s just the most unreliable and lazy person I’ve ever known. I’m lucky to have my mom, because she bent over backwards to do the job of two parents when my dad wasn’t willing to do his fair share.

If parents have joint custody no child support should be involved at all.

This actually happened to me. I was giving her more than that and after court I pay half the daycare and $114. She had the same reaction too. She told everyone I was ok giving “the minimum”.

If child support was used for the child then good. But it’s far too often used more like alimony than child support.

It’s safer for a man to put himself in CS, at least in FL.

A woman WILL eventually take you to court and the system will NOT honor any payments you’ve made in the past through a personal agreement, so you will not only be paying CS now, but you’ll be paying back-pay for times you already gave money.

Had a friend who kept all the moneys orders her bf sent for CS to his ex. When they got married the woman got mad and took him to court as revenge. My friend brought their booklet of receipts and were told none of that counted as “evidence” and were put on CS and back-pay.

Had a coworker who split in FL, but moved to S America. Before he left he and his ex went through family meditation and signed a care plan. He paid her every month through Western Union and kept all the receipts as well as the emails in which she confirmed picking up payment. She took him to court once he moved back and the same thing happened as my friend, none of it counted as “evidence”.

A friend’s friend had a monthly agreement with his ex, and on top of that paid for his son’s school and sports team. He and ex had a dream relationship, so it’s said. She got remarried and her new husband got greedy and got in her ear about asking for more. It was the new husband basically drug the guy to court. So this story in particular goes to show that no matter how much you and your ex get along, you can’t control the people trying to manipulate her or her wallet.

Cover yourselves. I know the system is broke as fuck, but you WILL have your day in court. Something to think about.

I have two coworkers that pay child support, one was offering a grad a month but she wanted more and took him to court….$325 a month lol. The other guy pays $1200 for two kids but has full custody, I tried getting him to renegotiate that. He had 0 (zero) custody when the child support started but then got full and has to keep paying. He’s afraid to take her to court because he thinks she will go after the kids again to spite him. Shits not right

Edit: to clear up some confusion. He had no custody when the child support was issued and then after some time got full custody so the mom could start a new/better family. He did not get the kids and pay child support from the start, kids came later.

Fuck her but as long as the money is going to my daughter I’d continue paying $500

Child support is only as effective as the one who spends it.

I love that. Trying to get the court to order him to give more money, and then half what it actually was. If she wasn’t greedy, she would’ve been getting more. What a dumbass
