Child support laws in this country needs to be changed drastically. The laws are to broad and generalized and need to be guidelined for individual circumstances. Everyone knows someone that is being drug through the mud because of child support.
Granted there are those fathers that won't support their children, those that are making the effort to do so shouldn't be punished. Child support should not be set up to support the custodial parent's (usually the mother) whole family.
It should not be something that can be completely dependent on. Some parents use child support to intimidate other parents which means there is too much power behind it.
We, the undersigned, call upon the Attorney General's Office of Missouri to review and revise the current child support laws in order to give each parent a FAIR chance to support their child.
