Of course having public authorities go after private parties in civil cases is another part of the Child Support racket.

You can't even really dignify such abuse by calling it "milking," since a dairyman who fails to milk his cow can't get a court order directing the cow to produce milk when it wasn't being collected.

But I thought "[c]hildren are the priceless fruit that may come from a marriage or relationship," according to your post here:

So if the children are born of private parties, they are more like cow's milk than priceless fruit?

The financial obligation of both parents to raise a child exists, whether custody is full or not. If you disagree with the formula your state comes up with to assess the child support obligation of both parties, take that argument to your local legislature.

If they don't listen to a single man's argument regarding how he sees the appropriate obligations of parents in various economic circumstances....tough.
