While mothers can call upon the state to coerce the father to pay child support, a father victim of the various methods women use to deny visitation cannot.

So mom gains money from state coercion of fathers and often can deny visitation to fathers without consequences.

The child support racket is a marvelous system.

I think your first clause should read:

While the custodial parent can call upon the state to coerce the non-custodial parent to pay child support...

So I fixed that for you, SP.

a father victim of the various methods women use to deny visitation cannot.

I agree that either parent, whether custodial or non-custodial, should have equal access to their child (in a normal, non-abusive to the child relationship). Perhaps you should make your feelings known to your local judges and county administrators, and vote accordingly.

The clause you wrote stating: ....a father victim of the various methods women use to deny visitation cannot.
is your typical inflammatory fare. I translate it as:

"O, lo those pernicious women-folk who use their wiles against the meek, unsuspecting kindly male."

And I realize again that you are not seeking solutions or the truth, but just slashing out at the phantoms in your life.

If you really think the child support system is a racket, set about to fix it. I personally never thought parents should be on the hook for the kid's college education, since the "kid" is then 18.

I've no kids and am very happily partnered for 20 years, but my new neighbors have three sweet kids and are currently divorcing. Some of their arguments make me concerned for those kids. I hope they rise above their conflict and keep their kids' needs as their top priority.
