It nice that you adopted children however then you were their legal parents with all the legal responsibility and rights of parenthood.
As a step parent I have the job of supporting the total family with zero rights of parenthood just to start with.
One of the fathers was an entertainer who traveled around Europe and good luck with CPS getting anything out of him.
The other man own a cash business and seem to be able to hide income with amazing skill.
Neither man visited or contact his child in the years of my relationship with their mother and then married to their mother.
So tell me another story as how well the child support system work and that being even more unfair to fathers is going to get more out of them or benefit the children in anyway.
People take care of children because of the emotional bonds between them and the children and the current system with it one purpose of getting funds 0ut of the men tend to destroy that bond.
The one man with the emotions bonds was the one man taking care of their needs not the two men with courts orders to do so.
