    Default Enforced child maintenance.

    Has anyone had a child maintenance order enforced?
    What documents of proof of income (if any) were required?
    Was you income from abroad taken into consideration, or was it only what you earn here?
    How much income did you declare, how much were you ordered to pay?

    From what I understood they can not ask you to produce international income, only what is generated here, but I have just heard about a case where he was ordered to produce international income, refused and so was jailed. Men are really on the back foot these days, women have taken the whole equality thing and made it corrupt over the space of about 12 months. If this is true then any woman can now file for an order, if her requests are not met then the guy just goes to jail. Something tells me the over crowded prisons are about the become even more cosy. Why can this country not do anything right, satisfactory or even remotely down the line.

    I have never found even a rinconcito of my herat where I could feel sorry for a man who refused to care for his offspring. Any more than I can feel sorry for the killers at the Boston Marathon that someone was trying to get sympathy for.

    Fish, I think most guys don't have a problem with taking care of there offspring. They just don't like to subsidize the mothers fantasy life style, and support her whole extended family.Its much more complicated than giving the mother an amount of money every month. In many cases the child will not benefit at all but the mother has new cloths updated electronics etc.
    Many woman on the island have no ambition other than having a child with an A.T.M (Guy with money)
    Its a complex topic here as it is everywhere, but no guy wants to be taken advantage of so the mother can sit at home and watch soap operas.

    As has happened before I edited it and the editing didn't take. Rinconcito is Spanish meaning corner from rincon and the other incomprehensible word was supposed to be heart. Sorry.

    I got my girlfriend to go the fiscal to get her no-good ex to pay. He had told her for two years that child support laws didn't apply to the police. He also lied about where he worked, reneged on a promise of health insurance and hid behind his mother's skirts when I drove her to see him. So, with a little prodding and the support of her sister, off to the fiscal she finally went. I believed she had to bring her identification and the child's birth certificate. The ex initially failed to appear and then was ordered to the following week. I wasn't at the hearing but I suspect it involved questions about paternity, proof of income, and so on. When all was said and done, he was required to spend around 1000 pesos a month for food and pampers, which doesn't sound like much but it's a big chunk of a national policeman's salary. If he refuses to pay, he'll go to jail.

    I can't speak to what it would be like to be on the receiving end of the legal action but everything seemed fair from my perspective.

    I have known several men over the years that felt that they had no responsibility to pay child support. None here, My onw brother whimpered and whined when his ex remarried because he assumed that the new husband would push her to have him pay child support, but back in the USA, but if he, any man, sends money the posibility that the child eats every day improves, and i am aware of here in the DR of kids who don't eat everyday. One little 8 year old guy stays at our house from Fri nite thru Sun nite because his Grandmother doesn't have enuff to feed 6 grandkids. I know no more of the situation than that which Milady told me, but assume that there is at lesast one daddy out there who is not takig care of his kid or kids.

    I have known more than one man in the USA who were opposed to sending child support, I believe as you say that most guys do care, but there are millions who don't give a damn. I've heard my brother whining when his ex was going to remarry that that would mean that her new husband would push her to have him pay his responsibility. And as far as the money being spent on other things goes, if the mother gets any money at all the possibility that the child eats everyday is increased, and I know for sure that there some kids in this country who don't have that privelege. There is a little 8 year old who stays with us from Friday night thru Sunday night every week end. All I know about him is what my lady says and that is his Grandmother doesn't have enuff money to feed all 6 kids in her care. So there has to be at least one daddy who isn't taking care of his responsibilities to his children.

    It seems that there are people in the world who like to play, but don't like it when the rules get in the way. Birds of a feather flock together. I'm happy that another deadbeat has been taken to task.
