Whassup peeps
Watching TV for a while, flipping through a bunch of talk shows, and the vast majority had women bitter at men just telling them that they have to pay up or they will never see their kids. I've been the product of child support somewhat, but child support means alot more than a check. I'd much rather my pops and moms were still together than going through that stuff. Don't get me wrong, that check means a lot to the well-being of the child, but I've seen plenty of times where the mother spends the money on herself.
So I guess I'm asking you guys a few questions...anyone can answer and give their opinion, but I'd also like to hear from the OKpeeps with children
1. How vital is that check?
2. Would you rather the money for the child, or quality time with child from the other parent (I ask this because usually in messy break-ups, one of them is compromised)
3. How far are you willing to go to get the child support from the other parent (Rephrase: Would you rather take the other parent to court, or cut off all contact with the other parent)
4. How do you think it affects the child (particularly younger ones)
5. Last question: How do you feel about those who take advantage of child support (Those that don't pay, or those that do pay, but the money doesn't go to the child because of parental greed)
Fill me in on your stance of this peeps
