Technically they're forced to pay child support and spend time with it. The only exception are fathers who literally run the **** away and can't be tracked down.

They are forced neither.

My ex is supposed to see my son and pay child support.
He barely sees him, and since December doesn't have to pay apparently.

The same goes for the woman's side, even if abortion is made illegal, there are always ways around laws if she really does want the baby.

Sign over your parental rights and you don't have to pay child support or look at it.

Hey, that sounds like my father. He owes over $30,000 in child support (not including the  interest). He might be going to jail for not paying and I hope he does.

No fathers are forced to spend time with the child, only to pay child support. Source: I have a deadbeat father.

I love how you called the child "it"

What? Keeping it gender-neutral.

but they're not "forced" they deduct their wages so if they get paid under the table and have no other assets they cant force them to pay anything at all and technically owe the money but they child/mom will never see it, also guys can force a girl to pay child support if she leaves because that does happen too. my fathers never paid a dime.

did you know that a woman had sex with a minor, got pregnant and then he was forced to pay child support. thats statutory rape but he still had to pay ******* child support.

probably irrelevant but i found it to be interesting trivia

did you hear about the guy that got sentenced to six months in jail because he paid too much child support and spent too much time with his child after the terms of his separation agreement were altered without his knowledge?

that's why you don't let them know your name.
Christ, that's offensive, but seriously guys, if you're having a one night stand, don't take them to your place and don't give them your actual name and avoid using your phone number. Same for the ladies, you don't want some creep tracking you down.

they're not required to spend time. And paying child support does not equal being a father.
my friend's dad paid child support regularly for 18 year, and he's never tried to contact her even after her mom passed away.

I don't think they can be legally forced to spend time with the child, only have to pay support.
User avatar #184 to #43 - nandaaz (01/18/2014) [-]
isn't it the childs right to see his father? (Just wondering, always thought it was)
#301 to #184 - pridefulmatthew (01/18/2014) [-]
tell that to black children
#286 to #184 - tsukaza (01/18/2014) [-]
What made you think that?
User avatar #321 to #286 - sairajayn (01/19/2014) [-]
Yes they do. But the parent has a right to not see them.

/stalk but don't spoiler me I can't read em lol
#323 to #321 - tsukaza (01/19/2014) [-]
If the parent doesn't want to meet them then the right of the child has sorta disappeared...
But you spoilered first! But you spoilered first!
User avatar #324 to #323 - sairajayn (01/19/2014) [-]
Not really, it is just ignored. Like my right to do what I want being as noisy as I want is ignored because people around me have the right to live in peace.
#325 to #324 - tsukaza (01/20/2014) [-]
That's because in that case the Benefit of society > the Benefit of one.
User avatar #326 to #325 - sairajayn (01/20/2014) [-]
It's same, the child still has rights they just aren't fulfilled.
User avatar #302 to #286 - nandaaz (01/18/2014) [-]
Well, adopted kids have the right to see their birthparents, so I thought that also applied to normal children who want to see their parents
#303 to #302 - tsukaza (01/18/2014) [-]
The birth parents can still say no, they don't want t meet the child as far as I'm aware
