    I have felt the hand of MEP even when I had my son living with me. My daughter was living with my ex wife and she still was able to get child support, plus she lived in a half million dollar home her husband made twice as much as me and all she did was sit back a rake in the money.
    I think the law has to change and the support should be based on Household income rather than individual income. If the ex spouse remarries the new spouses income should come into play as well.

      Thank you very much for your comment.

      Your story is SADLY very TYPICAL. The law, and indeed the application of it, is seriously flawed. We hope you will join us in Anti-Maintenance Enforcement Program Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/2374072958/ .

      Here’s my comment to that. I agree. Let’s put the shoe on the other foot, though. I raised all my kids (5) in extreme poverty while my ex concealed income and couldn’t cared less if he ever saw them (which he didn’t). He got away with paying me 305.00 per month for all 5 (when he wasn’t 3 months behind),he screwed me out of a proper home for the kids to live in when we divorced (while he proceeded to buy a nice house). Now he’s with someone who he has been living common-law for 5 years and works yet he claims single on tax returns, he owns his own company, is a realtor and yet has somehow convinced the FMEP that he has become this “victim” at my hands, therefore, I have yet to receive anything from him in regards to a modest amount of back child support ( under 6000.00) And the battle rages on. Believe me Arne, there are victims on both sides of the fence.
