Kansas Fair child support and equal parenting time
      #753919 - 07/01/11 01:02 PM

We started a facebook group called "Kansas Fair child support and equal parenting time rights". We support law mandated equal parenting time for fit and willing parents and equal distribution of child support for the best interest of the children. Fair child support will take away the incentive for parents to fight for unequal parenting time for the wrong reasons. Please make a search for the group in facebook and join our fight.
Thank you

I'm not on FB, but good on y'all. Equality is the only thing that's fair.

You can't "mandate" equal parenting time. You can create a law that presumes it. How do you determine what is "fair" child support? It would seem to be a rather sticky wicket.

Fair child support is 50%/50% along w/ custody, which oddly to many, is also 50/50.

I believe a presumption for equal parenting is appropriate. However, it some situations, it is unrealistic, In cases where there is a great geographical distance between the parents or in situations where there is high conflict and even abuse, it is impractical. Moreover, though the ideal is nice, not all parents are good/safe parents. That is why it would be a presumption that may be rebutted "fair child support?"

All of that is garbage spewed to maintain the status quo.

The only issue of merit raised is that of abuse, in which case a minor should not be left w/ the abuser.

Do you make money from continuance of the current game?

It is a reality that has to be considered. If you deal with enough cases, you see it daily. Perhaps, in a myopic setting where you are exposed to only a narrow cross section, it would appear that way, particularly if you are exposed to one viewpoint in the particular case.

As I said, I support a presumption for joint parenting time. It is proper in many cases, but not all. Your gratuitous attempt to impune my opinion with foolish questions about money exposes a weakness and ignorance in your presentation.

Well - I guess ignorance is the response. I certainly hope you are not the spokesperson for the movement.

While I agree with you on the abuse issue, I have a problem with the distance factor. Yes, equal parenting cannot happen with long distance parenting, but I think the person CREATING the distance should be the one to lose custody, and that is RARELY the case. And I have a HUGE problem with the "conflict" thing. The problem with that is that women are told by their lawyers that, in such states, if you claim "high conflict" you will get sole custody. So where is the incentive to get along?

Why give a "senior" discount, they have had plenty of time to raise the money...
