it's all about priorities and choices. his priority was himself, when it should have been the children.

i have a very good RL friend who lived in poverty with her 3 children for many years because her jerk of an ex-husband wouldn't pay his support. So dead beat dads (or moms) make me angry.

You choose to make a baby, and your life is no longer your own. You KNOW what the consequences can be once you put your **** into that nice warm spot. You don't want the responsibility of children, then do what it takes to not cause it. be it abstention, or protection. I know protection isn't 100% guaranteed, but you still have made the conscious choice to put it where it's warm and it could happen despite all protection. you're still responsible for it.

you now have a new responsibility, over and above your own wants... and trust me going to hawaii is not a "need" it's a "want".
I needed to quote this whole thing because I have a lot to say regarding this.

I'm going through a similar thing. Many of you know me, but I've been gone a long time. I am now divorced and fighting for child support. My ex makes DOUBLE what I do, has a roommate to pay rent and doesn't have 3 mouths to feed. His girlfriend started dictating his life, and interfered so much that he wouldn't call, he wouldn't email, and wouldn't send any money. He never would talk to me long enough to make an agreement. I tried to blackmail him into paying me, and it didn't work. Finally, I went to ORS to get his wages garnished. It took a year but they are finally sending money.

The point is, Sasi is not this kind of guy. This kind of guy is apparent in his blatant disregard for himself or others. Again, Sasi is not this kind of guy. I can visualize his ex and understand that she's a money-grubbing wench. People like this don't understand anything. I know many who would rather not have anything to do with their ex, make enough money to support themselves and their children and make the agreement to not worry about child support. That is why our laws allow such exemptions.

Regardless, name-calling is not appropriate. By him not being able make this payment, he will not be able to work, he will go to JAIL. What kind of a monster who expects a man to take care of his children thinks that asking for help in making this payment by any means he can find is a bad thing? That hurts more than helps and does nothing but paint a bad picture of your own character.

Yes, we all agree that if you make it you take care of it. You weren't there when they made the arrangement - so unfortunately, you have to choose sides. Not all dads are deadbeats, but their character speaks a lot for them and how they will handle the support of their children. Like I said, there are signs and things to look for. SASI HAS NONE OF THEM.

Having kids and splitting up with the other parent does NOT mean you forfeit every vacation, every spare dime or extra minute you have for the rest of your life. Not every waking moment revolves around the kids, not every penny of your income is devoted to them. I'm certain that you aren't as strict with your own time/money/talents or you wouldn't be here on this site.

What kind of fools do you take us for, Brother Green?
Umm actually, yes they do.

Sadly here in the states this is a big issue. Mostly because there are soo many "dead Beat Dads" here for reasons unknown. Some like Sasi have a reason, but the courts fail to accept thier arguement as they have "heard it all before". In Sasi's case I believe him, as he seems like a reasonable guy, who is "tring" to do the right thing.

Others have a reason for being a dead beat dad, IE they do not have a job, and can not find one, no matter how hard they try. I have a RL friend that has such issues for a while. As soon as he got a job though he ponied up the cash to fix the problem. Although he lost his licsense for a time and actually DID goto jail for 30 days for failure to pay owed support. He now has the kids in his custody, as the mother turned out to be a drugie anyways. Spending most of the back child support she got when she won and he finally got a job on drugs instead of the children. Another of those never worked a day in thier life women who think the world owes emm something.

The biggest of these problems comes from those who have the means yet do nothing. They skip town, change thier names, get new jobs all hte time, anything in the name of not having to pay one dime to thier ex. Personally based souly on what I have read and heard about Sasi and this case, this does not sound like he fits this criteria.


BTW congrads Sasi on making the goal.

In his left hand I beheld a Sword, which gleamed with light as if on fire.

Congrat's and responses.

Greeney ~ he is probably paying for his ex's revenge issues, pot addiction, and refusal to work on her own.

I agree with this.

Godiva ~ But SaSi should still make the attempt to get that poor little girl out from under her drug addict of a mom. If I were in his position, it would be my only goal in life...

First intelligent and only thing I will respond to from you!! Since I'm trying to stay in a good mood even though your absolutely ignorant and jump to conclusions to quickly. Find out fact's before you use your friend as an example, not every situation is the same and not all men are bad!

SaSi ~ Anyway my friend Chris gave me a place to stay but that was no environment to raise a child in
Chris was a good friend and someone you could really count on and I miss him a lot but the situation wasn't a good one.

First of all, congrat's on getting the money together and my respect for not bringing your daughter into a bad situation, that tells me your a responsible and compassionate man. And about the asking you for $500 twice in one week tells me that she has gone past the pot and is now doing crack and/or meth and you need to get your daughter out of that situation asap. Which I'm sure you will do.

Although I haven't heard her side of the story, with all the people that respect you I don't feel that you are fibbing about what you've said.

Good Luck in the future and take care of your child.

I wish I could've helped but I've been without a job myself and and running a risk of losing my home for Christmas and no Godiva or other's I don't want any money, I will get it taken care of.

Happy Holiday's everyone!!

I wanted to tell everyone how much I appreciate all that you have done for me, but I feel any words of mine would not do justice to the selfless acts of so many. You reminded me that there are good people in the world willing to help others when they are in need. I think that is what I'm thankful for most.
I wish all of you a safe and happy holiday season.
