Here in Ky the child support payments are based not only on income but also on the type of job.
It is figured as a percentage of income of the person paying the support.
Child Support is calculated by percentage but then it is ordered as a set fixed amount.
As like c/s gets ordered as $300 per month or as $2,000 per month but it is NOT ordered as 25% or 10% or even as 50% of the parent's salary.
Consider we have payroll taxes every pay day and every pay check, and it is always a percentage garnishment.
With Child Support the poorest parents become homeless and are put into jail and lose their jobs and the c/s keeps adding up the set fixed cash demands when there is nothing to take a percentage of.
The USA has some 2 million people in jails and prisons nationwide so we could order them all to pay $300 a month in taxes but it could not be paid, and yet the Child Support demands cash money from dead broke and impoverished parents and claim that as justice and rightful when it is absurd.
And as a result those parents who are pillaged and plundered and degraded have children who are also damaged because the children are a part of their parents.
We do not help children by attacking and degrading and by robbing their parents - no.
