why do parents walk away from children and never help
my ex thinks 100 dollars is alot of money for 7 months ...this is what i have gotten for a new baby that is 7 months old ...do you think this enough? I know i spent more then that in one month . Can you tell me what is the average amount to support one baby is a year?
Obviously the exact amount varies by where you live, etc...but I know with my son I spent $150 a month on formula alone (I wasn't able to breast feed) and then you add in any solid foods, diapers, a larger house to accommodate the extra person, any child care expenses, etc. it's definitely a good chunk of money. I think every state differs, and I'm sure every country does, but I know in Wyoming child support is figured on 25% of the non-custodial parent's gross income and this seems to be fairly standard throughout the US. If you're in the US and haven't done so, you can go to child support enforcement through DFS to get a standard amount set. Even if he's not employed right now or not a W-2 employee, once that's set by the state then it doesn't go away until he pays it...he'll get no tax returns, ineligibility for a lot of benefits, etc. until he's paid to current on support obligations.
I have to say, that quite a few years ago, $220 dollars a month for one child, and that was based on the minimum wage at that time. Of course the more income the ex makes the greater amount of money is deeded to the child. Not that you want to scrape the man over the coals. Yet it is their responsibility to help with this child, they should do what they can and not look at it as it is a sentence, but an honor to help with their child. As the child gets older, they will appreciate the fact, that their dad helped with the expenses of raising them. Going through the support enforcement, will help you get the fair amount you need, and on a regular basis...if your ex won't do things on his own?

When should the line be drawn for a non-custodial parent who refuses to pay child support? Is there a set amount before something is done?

I just returned from Chicago's gay pride week, where I marched along with my friends from Campit Resort from Saugatuck, Michigan. We were float #173 of 250 floats. Gay protesters slashed the tires of 50 floats, thinking that it would stop the parade, but all it did was delay it. The media reported...
