    The federal incentives drive the system


    Title IV-D and Corruption
    “The federal incentives drive the system. The more divorces, and the higher the child-support guidelines are set and enforced (no matter how unreasonable), the more money the state bureaucracy collects from the feds. Follow the money. The less time that non-custodial parents (usually fathers) are permitted to be with their children, the more child support they must pay into the state fund, and the higher the federal bonus to the states for collecting the money. " - Phyllis Schlafly

    Title IV-D and Michigan: Is Michigan a safe place to move your family? Is Michigan a family friendly state? Does the greed for Title IV-D federal incentives create a state that desires or encourages the outcome of a custodial and non-custodial parent? Why have other states passed “shared parenting” legislation yet Michigan, is still using child custody laws from the 1970s?

    Ron Paul on Title IV-D

    “Instead of the easy fiction that massive numbers of fathers are suddenly and inexplicably abandoning their children, perhaps what we should believe instead is that a lucrative racket now is cynically using our children as weapons and tools to enrich lawyers and provide employment for judges and bureaucrats. Rather than pursuing ever greater numbers of fathers with ever more Draconian punishments, the Justice Department should be investigating the kind of crimes it was created to pursue — such as kidnapping, extortion and racketeering — in the nation's family courts.” - Dr. Stephen Baskerville, PhD.

    “I worked in the hell hole called child support for almost 6 years. I thought I was going to die. It was the most frustrating, sad, depressing, hideous job I have EVER had in my life. When I quit, I told them I had received a more lucrative offer from a sweatshop in Calcutta. I still have friends there and things have not changed in the 2 years since I left. I had a letter hand delivered to Greg Abbott outlining the problems -- double dipping from two jobs, overcharging non custodial parents, defaulting people when they were not served, intercepting tax refunds illegally and my personal favorite; garnishing the savings accounts of two children, basically forcing them to pay their own child support! The FIDM unit thought it was FUNNY. I failed to see the humor.” Melissa Puntenney - Former Paralegal for Attorney General’s office (TX)
