Child Support Laws need to be reviewed and modified. There are a vast amount of injustices that are going hand and hand with the laws and guidelines in place. Let this petition as well as the signatures acquired serve as a red flag to the current Child support laws and a modification be taken into serious consideration.Majority of parents paying child support are men and some (not all) of these men are not with the mother of the minor child because they could not get along. Whatever the reason may be, in several situations matching the above exampled focus is drawn to the non custodian parent ability to obtain the support by any means or any number of harsh punishment can and will be carried out with extreme force. Reasons for the harshness of the punishments have been speculated but leaned more towards a shouts of conspiracy. Jail time and suspending licenses just to name a couple, and these punishment go across the board weather you make the most effort you can make but still fall short of complying with the order or you blatantly just neglect the order and try by every means to elude the order. These laws set in place to prevent dead beats from shucking parenting duties is where this flaw lies. This does not only serve its supposed purpose but on the other end it catching a lot of good hard working people in its web and makes a stressful situation of trying to do the right thing despite not being able to into a rare case of being punished for doing your best and all that is in your power. That action sends the wrong message to us as a people. Earlier mentioned, when the mother and father of the minor child are not together as a couple they are not always on good term which can lead to a for of emotional neglect to the minor child. While the current child support laws do server there purpose of weeding out the "Dead Beats" it is responsible for punishing the innocent and hard working, it all in itself is responsible for leaving some children emotionally in the cold.(The exact numbers I do not know but even one child whose emotional needs are not being met or are being neglected is one child too many) Couples consoling can and should be mandatory for any child support order issued. That would serve to flush out custodian parents that are not in that great of a need for support from receiving too much and taking away from the non custodian parent, also would be able to show if child support is being used as a weapon to get back at the other parent for personal reasons,lastly it would server as a mending for the once couple so that they can move forward as better parents and teach their minor child that relationships are not a bad thing and give the minor child a more balanced life.
