"I am IN the movement. The problem is that the MOSTLY female 85% of parents who are CP's are willing to LIE, and twist stats to KEEP their advantage. "

You want your ex-wife to be a class protected from discrimination because she's an NCP, so you can be held accountable for how you spend your money on your kids?

Yep. Have NO problem being treated the same as her. I don't think, with three kids, I would have trouble justifying the $200 she is SUPPOSED to be paying a month. But I wouldn't HAVE to, cause she doesn't pay, LOL.

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

Okay, here's your chance... you're the CP, you believe you should be held accountable... how much a month is your CS share to spend on your kids, and how do you spend it?

""Here's an example:

NCP makes $4K/month, CS paid is $1000.
CP makes $20,000/month, CS received is $1000. "

Here's another example:
NCP's income can not be determined because NCP has two "businesses", even though NCP does not file taxes for either one. NCP owes thousands in arrears. NCP has been to court numerous times for nonpayment over the last decade, pays for a few months and then stops again, restarting the cycle. In the mean time, CP pays 100%, whether cs comes or not.

Note that the above isn't typical, but with the laws the way they are, it is possible."

That's more than possible. It read about it happening often, especially with business owners, who can easily hide income.

What I do knowis my situation is common, at least in my state. My CS is twice what I spend on the kids with their 50% time with me.

With that said, I could have the kids 100% of the time and receive no support, and I would be financially ahead from where I am now.

Incomes of 4k and 20k/month are common in MN?

Not the income part, the part of paying double what support really should be, at least if you are lower to middle income.

I've found that lower income NCPs don't pay even close to 50% of what kids actually cost. Double of what support should be? How?

"how much a month is your CS share to spend on your kids, and how do you spend it?"

Well, lets see, rent is $700 a month, so about $100 of that is for the one remaining child (remember, two of mine just turned 18 and/or graduated HS). Figure $20 a month for utilities, $200 a month for food, average $50 a month for clothing/shoes, etc. Add in $25 a week for school lunches, that is $100 a month. That is $470 a month in BARE MINIMUM expenses, she is ordered to pay $200 a month. I am covered.

Actually they came up with a percentage based on income, what you choose to spend on your kids is your business, and what your ex does with it would seem to be hers. In a perfect world it would be dead on, you and your ex would agree on what the kids cost, no NCP's would question the CP because they know it's for the kids, and the CP would just allow the NCP to pick a number for support because the NCP also know it is about the kids..better watch out though, it is dangerous in that land, what with the unicorns running free and glitter balls just dropping everywhere.....
