I don't know how true it is but a lot of women take off and then they try to collect state $$$. And the poor guy don't even know he has a kid. And now they are going to put your face on a pizza box. I think this is wrong for the very reason I have given the man did not know she was prego. and he is tuanted all around with no defense.

So what you think about your face being on a pizza box?

Getting pregnant and suing for child support is very common. It sucks. More reason to wear a condom.

I know several guys who I have fallen victems to this sort of behavoir. I'm not saying it is all women.

Common in Georgia, look up the laws about child support there, women is entitled to about 25% (I think its somewhere around there) of your gross income, now if said women has 4 children with four different fathers...  You see what I'm getting at.

I do see what you are getting at - an as-yet unsupported speculation that intentionally becoming pregnant for the purpose of seeking child support is common.

Cite/Reference?

EDIT - ok, that came off as a bit harsh.  My point is simply that this is one of those myths that circulates randomly, because "everybody" knows somebody who allegedly is in on this "scam".

I used to do some work in the exciting business of chasing down deadbeat dads.  And let me tell you - getting pregnant to collect child support is the dumbest "scam" ever.  Now getting pregnant to collect welfare payments, that used to have some merit - but child support is a toughie.

Yeah, I was going to call it.

Getting pregnant simply for child support is not the brightest of scams. The amount one has to spend on the child, I don't think it would be even close to feasible to attempt to live off of child support alone.


It seems to be in the same category as someone losing a job, or not getting hired because of Affirmative Action.

As in, nobody has actually been through it themselves, but EVERYBODY knows somebody who knows somebody who's uncle dealt with it once.

The only problem I see with child support is what happens when the person
who is paying child support losses their job? the money builds up... for
example you owe $500 a month based on your current wage and what have
you. You lose your job and dont have a job for 2 months... so you owe
$1000 in back child support but now you are making less then you where
previously and you have a hard time paying the $500 to begin with but now
you also have to pay off the $1000. im sure you could go back to court and
have the ammount changed but you might still owe that $1000, or you
might not ... im not to sure about all that stuff.

^^^^   varies from state to state.  In some/many states, child support can be docked directly from your paycheck as a percentage, and gets adjusted automatically.  In other states, you have to go before a judge/administrator to change the dollar-level of support.

PITA no matter what.  And a lot of guys will move and change jobs to get away from child support.

No see I said had money.  This is basically what happened.

They had my sister
Bought a house on the beach for like $200k, then dumped another $200k into by remodeling it.

And then my dad lost his job as the VP of a lumber company...so now he's making like half of what he used to make

Frankly, I think it's a great idea. At the very least, it could make interesting dinner table conversation.

Saw it on Google already though.

Child support isn't enough to raise a kid with. It's a scam that makes the mother loose money and have to work minimum wage.

I don't think he is.  Simple math, really.  Assuming an average salary and a single child, 25% of that is one-quarter of an average salary, which is well below poverty line, and you have two mouths to feed.

There may be some savings with multiple children - from multiple fathers (multiple children from the same father usually does not result in doubling/tripling of the support amout) - but unless the father has a very significant income, living on child support alone is a certain path to abject poverty.

Child support is just that - support.  It is not intended to be the sole source of income for the single parent, but a supplement.
