I am wondering if you guys are aware that women also pay child support when men have custody of the children? Women are arrested the same as men when they don't pay child support as well they should be.
Woman pleads guilty for not paying child support
I myself do not divide the genders in that way as I know the Child Support and Custody laws hurt both the Moms and the Dads whether one is paying or receiving the money.
The report in that link you give does not tell us the more pertinent information, as like was she under-employed? or why she did not pay? and it does not tell if she has the ability to pay now?
The 5 years probation means she did NOT pay off the arrears, and it means the next time she is brought to the Court which is likely to be within the next 6 months then she can be sent to prison for five (5) years creating another parent turned into a criminal and another family degraded by those ignorant Child Support and Custody laws.
That link is dated as 2008 so she might be years in prison right now with a couple more years to wait, and it cost near $25,000 per prison inmate which is enough to completely pay off the so called "Child Support" and give the Mom a minimum wage job at the same time and still have money left over for the State to keep.
And that report declares the Mom had not paid the so-called "Child Support" for some four (4) years and yet the father and their children are all doing just fine which means we are prosecuting that Mom when there is no victim and no person harmed and no violence and no real crime has been committed.
It is just stealing money from that Mom without a legitimate reason or any sensible justification.
Claiming to treat Moms and Dads as equal when we treat them equally trashy and unjustly then that is a sick idea of gender equality.
