CHILD SUPPORT PROBLEMS
Continued from front page
Thanks for this forum. A lot of us need to vent, and many do need to find out what can be done. I have heard horror stories like this before--a couple I know had separated for a time and child support paperwork was started. After the couple got back together one of them was told to pay child support. While trying to straighten out the mess, it was enforced, and the money was taken from their income tax through the IRS. That child support was taken from the parents and given to the CSCU. IT WAS NEVER GIVEN TO THE PARENTS for support of the child. The family was being responsible and was taking care of their own child and they were punished for it. The entire family lost.
I am suggesting to everyone, no matter where you live, if you are having a problem with Child Support, look at the problems created by the new Child Support Collection Units; find out how many people have been alienated by the system before taking it to court! Try to work the problems out on your own. Sit down and talk, you may be amazed at what a bit of conversation can do. Don't allow the government to become involved in your life, it will only serve to frustrate you farther. Hire a mediator if you must - but REFUSE to allow the State, County and Federal Government to continuously make your lives more complex. There has to be a better way!!!!
The government can't seem to get much right -- they slander each other during political confrontations; they spend, spend, spend and do not seem to be able to balance a budget.
Our President, in view of the Adelphia and World Com scandals wants to make executives accountable for their actions, yet no one has asked him for accountability for selling off two thirds of his oil company in Iraq 2 months before his father brought about the Gulf War.
The United States is involved in an anti-terrorism dilemma, yet no one has asked George W. Bush if this could possibly be a personal vendetta rather than a true act of terrorism against the United States. Has the President volunteered to the world that he was business partners with Osama's brother, and vacationed with the entire family on several occasions prior to the time when Osama's brother was killed flying a small private aircratft in Texas?
The problem is simple, the government is screwing up, in every aspect of the term, and now their screw-ups are affecting the very persons they were designed to help; OUR CHILDREN.,p> Recalling an important historical document, we all should review and think about what our forefathers wanted for us:
Declaration of Independance We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. --That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. --Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain [George III] is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
