Fed Pays States for Child Support Collection

It's been quite a long time since I talked at all about child support - that is generally not the gist of this site. However, for those of you who still don't understand that the states receive funds dependent on how successful they are at collecting child support, you will probably want to check this out:

Study of the Implementation of the Performance-Based Incentive System

This is a report from the Secretary of Health and Human Services to Congress. You can view it either as a PDF (you will need Adobe Reader) or on the Office of Family and Children web site.

It's time we all wake up and realize that the government has turned divorce and the allocation of children into a very lucrative business!

I talk a bit about this in a previous post you can view here.

Dear Meg,some of what you stated is true but the real people that pay are the people that are actually paying support. I want you to take a moment and think about child support enforcement. why doesn't support and visitation go hand in hand? Support doesn't have to be enforced through a contept charge like visitation does. why is that? Let's do the math for every person paying support, there is a percentage charge instead of a flat fee not to mention a fee your employer gets for helping take the support out. So I agree with you in the fact that the government has turned support weather it child or spousal into a business what I want to know is right the wrong. there are hardly any laws or guide lines on support and Ithink thats bull! When people were abusing wellfare food stamps our government came food cards. IF anything we should be able to claim it on our taxes we're the ones paying taxes on it and it's no different that alimony other than it's 18 years or better. thank you for dealing with my poor typing skills Ireally want to know if there is anything we can do.
