Deadbeat State Of The Month: Indiana!
Q: Al was so out of touch with a lot of things. It was mentioned by that administration but I don't think a single step was ever taken to make it happen. I believe congress had more to do with it than Al did. A lot of breaks and incentives were given to get vendors to provide, school districts to purchase, and it became more of a community project than any government project to get this accomplished. Apple was the first to DONATE computers to schools, after that....?
A: I understand what you are saying Fido, and I know that you have been through this a lot longer than me. The guardian ad litem recommended me for primary custody of the minor child and the judge ruled that way. This makes it easy for me to claim that custody was decided in "the best interest of the child." I have listened to so many sad stories of fathers who did not get custody of their children and can't help but think there must be truth to their claim of huge biases. In real life I see very few men even attempting to get custody of their children. Those who do and make a good effort, seem to stand a chance of receiving it. Keep in mind that I am only talking about a few dozen people who I know a lot about their divorce information, with only a handful that the men tried for custody. Most of the men never even tried for custody. I don't know whether it was due to lawyers advice, or advice from family and friends repeating that the woman "always" gets custody. Which is why percentage of income is better. No judges or lawyers necessary, except in the case of the true deadbeat. If you're working, the child gets a percentage of your wages. If you are laid off or become disabled, the child gets a percentage of your unemployment or disability benefit. That issue came up in Virginia, see story at the end of this post. Wresting micro-managing from the judges is a full time job, the district courts are out of control on the child support issue.
