Here is the short version: Everyone’s social security dollars are being used to fund state level child support agencies who in turn do everything they can to get as many people as they can into their system so they can profit from that. They profit in several ways; federal financial incentives, interest paid, state money and more. We are talking BILLIONS of tax payer dollars per year! Yes, billions. The kids NEVER see a dime of this money directly. There are no checks generated to the parents. Unless the government can get two parents to fight and have conflict, they will not make money from them. It’s that simple. And it is true.
There is only one way to put this…. If you have found yourself caught up in the family court system, you might be screwed. You’re not screwed because you have a kid. You’re not screwed because you fight with your ex. You’re not screwed because you might be getting a divorce. You’re screwed because the government says you are.
Pay close attention to what I’m saying here. The very best thing you can do is immediately get a stipulation (mutual agreement with the other parent) filed with the court and completely avoid the government’s intervention all together.
One of the most disturbing “laws” to ever happen to families, marriage and children. This Act, the Social Security Act – Title IV  (emphasis on IV-D [4D]), has done more to create familial division, domestic violence, incarceration, murders, suicides, bankruptcies, loss of property and loss of employment than any other law created.
Title IV-D creates a major conflict of interest within the child support enforcement (CSE) industry. When you study Title IV-D, you’ll understand why. The federal government uses YOUR social security contributions, to incentivize the States, CSE officers and District/County Attorneys all over the country. This sham can not work if they can not get parents and their children into the system. Once in the system, CSE depends on (and often facilitates) familial conflict because without the parents fighting, usually the parents won’t end up in court.
First, let’s remember that the money used for this comes from Social Security. Yes, you are paying for it, whether or not you have ever had children, been married, divorced or anything. Next time you hear that social security funds are rapidly dissipating, think about this outrageous use of your money and don’t forget, this money goes to the GOVERNMENT, not to the children or families.
So, let’s take a good look at how the incentive works (link to SSA website):
(A) The paternity establishment performance level.
There is not one law in existence that requires absolute proof of paternity (a paternity test). Not one. You would think the government (claiming to be looking out for the best interests of the child) would want nothing less than the real father involved, not just the first guy they can pin this on. Demand a paternity test! In most states, you can not name the father on the birth certificate without some type of admission of parentage and this, my friends, is where they hook you in. They count on your vulnerability at the hospital, with your new baby and your pride of ownership. What they DON’T tell you is that this admission of paternity gives the man absolutely NO RIGHTS to that child whatsoever, other than the right to go broke! That’s right, just because you are the father on the birth certificate doesn’t give you the right to ever see that child, to ever have custody of that child, to every take that child to visit relatives, to see that child on his first day of school or even at graduation.
No proof of paternity = no child support order. (period!)
It is very risky to admit paternity without due process. It is imperative that every single potential father demand a paternity test. The states have made this cost prohibitive, however, it can save you hundreds of thousands of dollars in the long run. Refer to US Code Title 42 (public health and welfare), Chapter 7 (social security), Subchapter IV (grants to states), Part D (child support and paternity), Section 666 (I am not making that up!) and you’ll see the government’s take on paternity establishment. And please note in 5 (I), it says No right to jury trial.— Procedures providing that the parties to an action to establish paternity are not entitled to a trial by jury.
(B) The support order performance level.
(C) The current payment performance level.
(D) The arrearage payment performance level.
(E) The cost effectiveness performance level.
