Child support means CHILD SUPPORT, not a new 4K TV or a spa day

WitnessMe 227 points ago +227 / -0

My ex runs around with Brand new shit and doesn't work lol. I still have to buy all my kids clothes and shit on top of the child support because I won't let them do without.

IncredibleMrE1 199 points ago +200 / -1

Should be grounds for custody renegotiation. Family court should be renamed anti-father court.

WitnessMe 154 points ago +154 / -0 (edited)

The system where I live is so Anti Father you are just wasting time and money fighting it.

I have thrown $25,000 at it and I have finally realized I just need to give up because I'm putting my lawyers kids thru college not mine.

DeadOverRed 83 points ago +83 / -0

Know an ex took child support and alimony over half a working salary (though she was perfectly capable of working), the kidnapped the kids despite joint custody. Every cop and every lawyer he called said if he tried to fight her, he'd be the one who ended up in prison. Of course, she was teaching them it was all the father's fault the whole time, and they ended up terrible kids.

Free Sophie was a perfect example of how terrible family courts are. I know he has alot on his plate but I wish Trump would do something about all the fathers and children getting screwed by this system. Its heartbreaking!

PinochetIsMyHero 6 points ago +6 / -0

Family law is 99% run by the states, not the feds. I'd have put 100% but sometimes immigration (spousal visas, international adoption) or treaty obligations come into play, like the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction (spouse grabs kid and flees to home country, which does nothing about it).

left_reddit_for_this 3 points ago +3 / -0

I used to think that was best because I truly believe in state rights, but with the amount of injustice and corruption going on in state government my heart says it shouldnt be 😡 im just so sick of hearing these stories and I believe children many times belong with the father over the mother. I also believe that alimony should be eliminated and has no place in a civilized society. Child support does have its place but only through controlled channels such as this card that only allows purchases of food and items for the children. Women who divorce their husband deserve absolutely nothing.

booblitchutz 66 points ago +66 / -0

Family Court is fucked no matter where you go. The system is so terribly slanted against men. I have a friend who as a kid had his mom up and leave him and his siblings one day and their father took care of them after that on his own. Then like a year and a half later the mom lawyers up and sues for custody and that shit went to court and his dad had to actually lawyer up and fight in court to keep the kids. In a fair system a judge would have taken one look at that and thrown it the fuck out!

WitnessMe 50 points ago +50 / -0 (edited)

My judge told my ex she was mentally abusing the children but he thought she had potential to be a good mom. Lol

I thought that guy was bad until he didn't show up one hearing and a female judge filled in for him. I never knew I was Satan until then.

JW_Rock 4 points ago +4 / -0

Yeah if it makes you feel any better those judges are the ones that are going to be squeezed out of government like a turd by executive order.

ColbyP 56 points ago +56 / -0

My friend's dad just said fuck it, went down to Dallas and straight up kidnapped his son from his crazy mother who was having them live in a fucking crack house. Took pictures of the place and the conditions she had their son living in and told if she so much as spoke to them again he'd have her arrested on child endangerment. They haven't heard from her in decades now.

doug2 56 points ago +56 / -0

That's not a kidnapping lol that's a rescue mission.

ColbyP 31 points ago +31 / -0

While I certainly view it as such, I'm sure the law wouldn't. She was a nasty woman, but she was technically his legal guardian. But sometimes the law gets in the way of doing what is right. Legal or not, leaving a child in place like that is wrong.

1A_FTW 9 points ago +9 / -0

That is amazing. I hope the kid is doing well.

With how badly the "family" court system fucks over men with the woman happily making false claims of rape or abuse of her and the children it's a wonder that it's not a common occurrence.

TranceDj 1 point ago +1 / -0


I’ll never marry. It’s simply not worth the risk. I’ve seen way too many men destroyed through family court.

And this little stunt regarding how a woman can spend her “entitlement” money does nothing to change my perspective. It’s a money racket, always has been and always will be.

Ekgamut 67 points ago +67 / -0

Alimony is an outdated term. Alimony exists because, decades ago, women cannot work and need men to pay them after divorce. Now, women can have a job. Thus, alimony isn’t needed anymore. Abolish alimony.

Average-Joe 33 points ago +33 / -0

DaesDaemar 24 points ago +24 / -0

Keep Alimony, get rid of feminism? Kids would then have a full-time parent and perhaps we'd be in a better place with society.

meals23 17 points ago +19 / -2

The problem is not feminism. The problem is the power the courts have to rip away a man's rights without giving a damn as the context of a situation.

You gotta remember what changed everything in the first place. How did the old order fall away? Women didn't have rights and privileges, and men willingly gave it to them because of the potential promise of some hairy free love snatch. The court system nowadays is set up specifically to fuck over men because all the lawyers are on the same side, working to make sure they keep getting paid while fighting it out in court for years, meanwhile they're sucking down resources from the one member of the familial unit that can reliably be expected to just shut up and take the abuse while getting sucked dry.

How often have you ever seen a woman who was the breadwinner for a family getting divorced and actually have to pay the cost of her (ex) husband's lawyer? Now, how many times have you seen that happen to a man? The lawyers are all in it together, there is nothing on this Earth lower than a family court attorney. The point is that it's not Marxist mindrot that made everything bad, it just made things that were already bad worse. What it really is is selfishness on the part of people in a position of authority not giving a damn about anything other than their own satisfaction.

VoidWanderer 11 points ago +11 / -0

The family court didn't just spring into existence. Feminists lobbied to have it separated out from the main legal system. Feminists created and pushed into place things like the Duluth Model which is why everything from the police to the courts are so against men. Women as a whole sit around and twirl their hair and sing platitudes about how "the situation is just so terrible!" but happily go right along with the lawyer when told to make up a rape accusation to get more, and to claim the man abused the children to get full custody along with even more child support.

You're right, weak men rolled over and put us in this position. Do not take one tiny bit of the blame away from the women though. They knew damn well what they were doing and took pleasure in helping to set up a system that screws over men in favor of women. Feminism is cancer and needs to be done away with as the communist trojan horse that it is.

DaesDaemar 1 point ago +1 / -0 (edited)

The problem is not feminism.

Perhaps, perhaps not. Feminism covers a lot of things. I'm not convinced it's done more good than harm, for individuals collectively or society as a whole. It seems to be the wrong solution to address the issue of valuing and respecting each sex (there are only 2). The fact that most of the insanity happening right now in this country is coming from people who identify ideologically as feminists seems to indicate it may be part of the problem. I don't have the solution, just asking the question. I love and respect women and value them yet much like BLM this appears to be bigger than what it seems on the surface.

litsy 6 points ago +6 / -0

I think alimony should still exist if the ex-wife was a homemaker. She doesn't get it though if the marriage wasn't dissolved on equal agreement or if the man is at fault.

Alimony and child support should never be given to a cheating spouse.

DO NOT be a non-custodial father in the state of GA or MA

Thracka951 49 points ago +49 / -0 (edited)

Ditto! She’s been able to go to school for 8 years because I’m paying her the equivalent of $50k/year in child support (I have to pay taxes on it, she doesn’t), and I still spend thousands to enroll them in extracurriculars, sports, buy clothes/shoes, electronics, etc.

The bright side is that while I have never once spoken poorly of their mother in their presence, she’s been talking shit about me for years, and my kids are finally reaching the age where they’re seeing that with all my talk of principles, ethics and personal responsibility, I practice what I preach, and that I’d make any sacrifice for them.

Glad I’m the one teaching them civics :-D

WitnessMe 43 points ago +43 / -0

LmAO. Same here. Just had a conversation with my daughter where she said she is sick of her mom always talking bad about me and she has never heard me say anything about her mom.

meals23 12 points ago +12 / -0

The real tragedy is that a lot of men can't make it that far. Stress is what kills you, and can anyone imagine more stress that a man can live with than to know his children were stolen away from him with the consent of everyone he ever knew by a woman he once thought he'd spend the rest of his life with, then he has to miss them growing up, all while being treated like a beast of burden?

How a man who is forced to live in such conditions can make it past 50, I truly don't know.

VoidWanderer 6 points ago +7 / -1

This is why I refuse to marry and refuse to have children. I want children and I want a loving wife, but I'm not dumb enough to try. I've looked at the rates of divorce and I've seen how easily women lie and manipulate, so to try and find the "good" one out of 999 snakes that will happily destroy me is not even close to something that I can attempt in good conscience.

I don't gamble for a reason and it's not worth everything I've worked for and my mental health on the tiny chance that I'll get what I'm hoping for. The odds are not in my favor and haven't been for decades.

iDinduNuffin 1 point ago +1 / -0

If you're healthy and have the resources, nothing's more important than having children. You don't need a loving relationship, you just need to be in control.

If you don't want to risk it, look into a surrogate or even just adopt and save a few kids from growing up in the Marxist indoctrination system.

Take advantage of all the attacks on the nuclear family.

VoidWanderer 1 point ago +1 / -0

While being a single father has less downsides than being a single mother, it is still not the way that children should be raised and would be a negative on them. I am not going to do that and cause issues just because people like you demand that babies be born.

You don't need a loving relationship, you just need to be in control.

The feminists and the state don't allow that. You'd realize that if you took any time to look into all the nonsense that has been put into place. Look up the Duluth Model and then try and tell me that men have any "control" in the relationship with that loaded firearm pointed at our heads.

DeusVultIntensifies 4 points ago +4 / -0

I know a guy who was living with his girlfriend. Girlfriend (already had 3 mostly grown children) got pregnant but did not want to get married. He worked, raised the child but complained that all his money went to her grown kids. She liked to hand out money to them to make up for their "troubled" childhoods.

She worked nights and basically did not want to raise another child. He doted on his kid. Worked hard, kept the house clean and did not want her drug addled kids around his kid. She got tired of his complaints, accused him of domestic violence and the cops removed him. He ended up not guilty on the bogus charges.

She took him for all he was worth and he fought tooth and nail to see his kid. He had almost no rights. It was a nightmare. He dropped dead of a massive heart attack. Stress induced after he was once again denied reasonable visitation rights.

commies0ride0free 3 points ago +3 / -0

Don’t know your daughters age but- my parents split when I was a teen (I’m a female) and my dad was a REAL piece of work, no doubt about that but he didn’t take the shit between him and my mom out on me. My mom on the other hand never missed an opportunity to tell me how awful he was.

I lived with him until there were too many drunks living there, then couch surfed, but if he had been a decent dad at that time I’d have been happy to stay. Give her a safe place and show her you’re invested in her FUTURE. She’ll see it.

As a men we tend to think if its not on fire everything is ok. Men can not talk to one another for a year or to and its fine. Women tend to need frequent affirmations. If women don't talk for that long then they each assume ones mad at the other.

the_sky_is_falling 2 points ago +2 / -0

The problem is this is one of those things where Conservatives are equally bad, if not worse.

The term Cuckservatives comes to mind.

So called pastors and priests openly shame conservative men for not marrying women and not once acknowledging why they are choosing to bang hoes and never settle down.

They will say absolutely nothing to the women in their audience about their whoring will hit and mock the men for "not being men"

And when the few men who listened to them and married a former party girl turned Christian housewife and she cheats on him, these same pastors and priests are no where to be found, until the alimony payments and child support payments cant be paid.

Then they're back with a vengeance - now attacking these "dead beat dads who aren't willing to do their Christian duty and man up and pay"

This isn't the Left doing this.

Its straight up Bible-believing "Christians"

There is a serious rot and it's not just the left that is stinking

prayinpede 2 points ago +2 / -0

I agree with everything you said. The left constantly exploits holes in conservative foundations. There are tons of things that need to be addressed to fix family issues.

Get govt completely out of marriage. No more secret family courts Alimony in few cases and temporary Lower child support. Records of purchases on both sides for verification. Remove insensitives both public sector and private for high payments

Many many more

I realize not all single moms are irresponsible, but it's like one out of 10,000. Unless she is a widow, by definition, she's made a lousy choice.


  1. Got knocked up when single, in spite of abundant, free and almost free birth control OR

  2. Married a POS she had to divorce OR

  3. Divorced a decent guy to be with a POS who later bailed on her OR.

  4. Divorced a decent guy to "find herself."

edxzxz 88 points ago +88 / -0

Why don't black fathers have to pay child support? If a woman applies for welfare / assistance and has kids, she should be required to identify the father, so that the father can be held responsible for the costs of raising the child. If the woman refuses to identify the father, then her welfare payments should be reduced by whatever amount a father would have provided had she not refused to hold him accountable. Once black men start having to pay for their kids either way, and once the financial incentive to not be married and not have a father in the home is gone, the rate of black kids with no dad in their lives will plummet. Being black isn't their problem, racism isn't their problem, 73% of them growing up with no dad in their lives is the problem.

hippiegunner1220 53 points ago +53 / -0

Interesting. As a white woman who had a child and didn't put the fathers name on the birth certificate, I was denied any form of free healthcare or food stamps because I wouldn't go through the courts to identify the father.

They know who the father is, it's all just a scam.

Looks like Child Support is the new Food Stamp.

People will be now trading it for 30 cents on the dollar so single moms can get their weed.

Sea_Still 21 points ago +21 / -0

I once watched a tweaker couple buying cases of water with their EBT and taking them out back to dump them out and turn in the bottles for deposit

I'll bet that's even less than 30 cents on the dollar

I paid $200k in child support over 15 years and my son doesn't have a college fund. She was complaining to me that she didn't make enough money to buy him a rain coat and he had to walk to school wearing a trash bag.

What the ever loving ffffffffff. Where was the money going? Sorry but there’s just no way...

I get my kids’ stuff at a used store because they are very physical boys and destroy their stuff quickly. A never-used top brand shirt runs $3-5. Designer jeans are about $6-8. Outerwear is about $10 for raincoats and about $10-15 for ski jackets.

You can clothe a child for the entire school year for just over $100.

Maybe the parents receiving the funds need to keep records to submit for a yearly review. If there’s spending that doesn’t benefit the child, you should be able to file a complaint with the court and have the amount credited back or put against future payments. And there should be penalties for repeated selfish spending.

This is one of the most brilliant ideas I've heard about. And the amazing part is that the tools to do this have been there for decades.

I've never bought sports gear. So if my card is suddenly used to buy sports gear at Starter the purchase gets flagged and I get a text message asking if it's valid (this happened to me). Merchant vendors have all been categorized by the payment processing companies to aid in fraud detection and also because it's useful to be able to sort purchases into categories.

So basically, if the card is used at category GROCERY like a supermarket or category MEDICAL like a doctor's office the purchase can sail through. If the card is used at category BEAUTY like a nail salon, it can decline the charge until the person on the other end approves it.

Brilliant, well done, now make this mandatory for all forms of support including welfare.

I see this so much. Many of my friends pay a lot of child support. These women treat it as supplemental income. Every cent of child support should be accounted for and confirmed that it went towards the child and it's well being.

If you can’t feed them. Don’t have them.

“bUT YOu hAtE aBOrtiON!”

It’s called condoms and plan b. Or just don’t have sex. There’s no excuse for abortion (beyond rape/health problems) if you never bothered with the previous options.

Good. I’ve seen someone buy lobster tails with food stamps.

There's already loopholes that people exploit with many welfare programs and this child support idea likely won't be different. Here's how the loophole works. First, go to a store that has something you want, Walmart is very common. Buy what you're allowed to. Then go straight to the returns department in the store and return everything you just bought for store credit/giftcard. Now you have free reign to buy anything you want or sell the giftcard for cash. This is the common workaround.

Every person proclaiming why they are child free. Thanks, because of people like you we are in a demographic crisis because you can't be bothered to vet a partner and have children.

If people were moral they'd just work out a deal separate from the government. But you know these fuckers are brainwashed by Satan and just want to hurt each other.

Oh well... you get what you deserve!

Oh, so the government telling you to wear a mask is a problem but mandating which brands you buy for your kids isn't?

WidePepoSad 3 points ago +3 / -0

I understand the idea here, but it's a logistical nightmare thinking about how this would actually work.

How do you know if a TV is purchased for the child to have in his room, for example, or if its being used in the mom's room?

Even if there are approved item lists such as food, clothes, school supplies ect, is still doesnt stop the mom from spending every penny of her own money on whatever she wants since this now pays for the kid.

This reminds me of how planned parent hood claims they dont spend any of the tax money on abortions. Yeah okay, so use use "that money" to pay the rent, and now you have extra cash to spend other places. In the end, it really doesnt make a damn difference.

NOT TO MENTION there is already rampant fraud in the food stamp program, people sell the food stamp money for 50 cents on the dollar for cash so they can go buy drugs or whatever. You telling me this wont happen here?

NOT TO MENTION now there is YET ANOTHER government program that has to be funded to maintain and issue these cards, run the program, vote on acceptable items, on and on and on, that all costs us more money to run.

I get it, and i understand people are frustrated their child support payments aren't being spent on their children, but i dont see this being the answer.

Good! That is how it should be! money shud go to kids!

FreedomCrayon 3 points ago +3 / -0

I wish this was real--I've been advocating for it for years. I've known so many dudes shackled to exes that wouldn't spend a damn dime on the child but kept buying new things for themselves or lived way beyond their means while the father was struggling to still support himself.

The even bigger kick to the balls is when some of those hwhoores (read in Frank Reynold's voice) run off and abandon the kids with the father but aren't forced to pay child support.

Is this real? I see a lot of states issue the money on prepaid cards but nothing about needing to spend money on the kid.

ApocalypseWoW 2 points ago +2 / -0

In my state child support was the ONLY right I had to my kids. My ex constantly broke our shared custody agreement with NO repercussions. The ONLY thing they cared about was getting their processing charge from my paid support.

Where is this. This makes me sooooo happy. People will quickly learn there isn't enough stuff to buy for kids with a card limiting to child only expenditures.

Nellie_the_Beaut 2 points ago +2 / -0

Please make these cards invalid in all NAIL SALONS!!! I don’t know why so many women toting around dirty, unkempt, hungry looking kids have long, fake talons on their fingers painted all kinds of exotic colors and patterns. It’s criminal.

Oh the horror, spending money for your kids, ON your kids.

It always cracks me up when I'm driving around and I see fast food joints and liquor stores with, "We accept EBT". I realize that's different money than child support, but it's the same principle. And we wonder why no one gets off of social support programs.
