Is child support fair to fathers?

6502091_s.jpgWhen it comes to divorce, some fathers may feel like they get the short end of the stick with child support and alimony. In some cases, fathers may end up feeling like the system is slanted toward women and does not take into account financial hardships, like job lay-offs, which can affect anyone.

Common questions before filing for divorce

Mother jailed for owing more than $300,000 in child support

8269653_s.jpgChild support is money that goes to the custodial parent by the noncustodial parent. The idea is this money goes toward the care of the children, such as food, clothing and housing.

Failng to pay child support can lead to a parent being arrested and placed in jail. 

Father's rights part 2: How fair is child custody?

13786019_s.jpgIn our last post we focused on how some fathers feel unfairly treated when it comes to divorce, especially in terms of being ordered to pay lifetime alimony to an ex-wife who is fully capable of working. However, this is not the only form of gender discrimination, as many men also claim to experience sexism when it comes to child custody.

Father's rights part 1: How fair is alimony?

16634020_s.jpgSexism is not something exclusive to women.
