WHAT WE ARE PETITIONING

No Gravatar

This is a growing list and will not be completed until this system has been ‘washed clean’ and a new one begun. The current system from start to finish is a total outrage and ‘thee’ most corrupt system to date that we are aware of.

1. Birth Certificates should not be used to establish paternity.

Are we living in caveman times? We have DNA technology; USE IT.

2. Non-Paternal Individuals should not be paying child support, or going to jail for non-payment and/or arrears!

Can you believe that this is the United States of America, year 2009? Yes, this has and is actually happening; Outrage.

3. Every case should be handled individually.

A petty thief is entitled to a trial… which brings us to our next outrage.

4. Child Support cases should not be handled under an Administrative Procedure, thus freely allowing all government levels to circumvent Due Process and the U.S. Constitution.

Yes, they are violating Americans’ Rights, but they can not be held accountable because, ‘IT IS NOT A LEGAL ACTION AGAINST YOU’ IT IS AN ADMINISTRATIVE ONE! Just think… you have a typist and paper pusher with no legal background, deciding what your destiny is by filling out the form of their selection and placing it under a Judges nose for a signature. Notice: People are being jailed for Contempt of Court; they didn’t comply with a paper pushers’ handy work. (Administrative decision against you; turned legal. “Violation: 11th Amendment “Judicial Limits”). Outrage, outrage…

5. Once a valid Child Support Case has been warranted, individuals should not be paying more than $50.00 a week maximum.

6. INDIVIDUALS SHOULD ONLY BE SUPPORTING THE CHILDREN: We have countless individuals paying for those who have re-married with good incomes. We have countless individuals paying for those who have single/multiple live-in lovers. We have ‘countless’ individuals who are not allowed to see their children and are paying child support. People, male or female, SHOULD ONLY BE SUPPORTING THE CHILDREN! Not paying for promiscuous behavior, nor for those who have re-married.

7. Child Support should cease to exist for an Individual once the custodial parent re-marries, or it has been established that an individual is living in their household; other than a close and immediate relative; for visitors and friends, a time line maybe established… just like it is on a lease agreement!

8. ACCOUNTABILITY for the MONEY!

If I had a nickel, (excuse the cliche), for every time an individual has been told by the courts, “It is none of your business what the money is being used for,” I would have a smile on my face. We are not allowed to know what the custodial parent is using the money for, nor, are we allowed to know what all the ‘EXCESS’ money (after the system gets paid), is being used for. Outrage, outrage…

9. Drivers License Suspension / Revoked: We feel that this makes no sense, (unless of course you are a Government recipient for the cash needed for ‘Conditional Licenses’, for ex. $75 presently in NY) how is a person to work if their license is suspended? Or Revoked???

A legal system that forces an individual to break the law to satisfy the Governments’ lust for money?

10. No ACTION TAKEN UNTIL PATERNITY HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED!

We feel that no action should be taken against any individual until paternity has been established 100% through DNA Testing. Even after Paternity has been established, there should be individual consideration of the circumstances involved. JUST LIKE A COURT OF LAW (not Administrative action), there should be EXTENUATION AND MITIGATION. Yes, an American Citizen with Due Process and Full entitlement of their United States Constitutional Rights! Specifically the 7th Amendment “Trial by Jury in Civil Cases.”

There are countless individuals caught up in situations that do not even pertain to them; non-paternal individuals who have not been allowed Due Process; 14th Amendment “Citizenship Rights.”

11. Minimal Child Support Intervention:

We strongly feel that unless it is absolutely necessary, the Child Support Agency and ‘big brother’ (Government) should not be involved. The majority of parents are very capable and willing to take care of their children and their own situations. In other words, “Child Support should not be mandatory if Welfare or other Public Assistance programs are involved.”

Greed and desperate financial crisis on part of the various Governmental Levels has convinced the vast amount of Americans that we need ‘them’ to do the Right Thing! Government intervention, (although presented as We Care to the public), has demonstrated that they do not. Ask anyone on either side of the fence (non-paternal, non-custodial, custodial), how they are treated by the Child Support System and what they know to be the local and state level agenda…??? MONEY!

If the System is to have any chance of working it must start over and become a LEGAL SYSTEM THAT COMPLYS WITH THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION and not remain an ADMINISTRATIVE SYSTEM; which allows all levels of Government to circumvent Accountability, Denial of Due Process and Denial of Our United States Constitutional Rights.

The new Legal System must take into account ‘every single’ individual situation. The same Rights Afforded an individual if they got caught stealing a stick of gum from their local store.

No more arm twisting from Child Support Offices to “Sign you up,” when it is not needed, nor desired; not desired even from the custodial parent. The Child Support System is a total disgrace and mimics that of the disgrace known as SLAVERY!

12. DEBTORS’ PRISON: Although this is not a Constitutional Right it is very rarely ever practiced in the United States. This little gem that puts ‘performance awards’ in all those participating in this Holocaust, is circumvented not only by, but because Child Support is set up to run as an Administrative Action. However, when opportunity presents itself $$$$commission$$$$, it may be presented as a Contempt of Court Hearing in a ‘Legal’ Proceeding, simply by a non-legal, unqualified clerk who drafts an enforcement action and gets the Judge to sign it. (The Government gets to eat cake and ice cream!). IF AN INDIVIDUAL IS TRYING TO COMPLY, looking for work, filing for Unemployment, making partial payments… this should satisfy and eliminate Contempt of Court. Thus eliminate jail for individuals who are making an honest effort to comply, but simply can not afford what has been demanded from them.

13. CHILD SUPPORT AMENESTY: We have men and women out there that are nameless, homeless, all rights and privledges stripped from them. Unable to drive, denied recreation and hobbies, denied the mere possessions of survival, denied real property… existing in their own consciousness and body. All because they succumbed to an over powering force known by this name; Denial of Human Rights. We need to desperately reach out and help these people and restore their Human Rights and give them back the United States Constitution that has been stripped from all of us; involved or not involved in the Child Support Travesty.

THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING! We have just begun to fight to get our country back.

About The Author

My name is James (Jim) DeLelys. I have been involved in the Child Support System for nearly 16 years. Over those years I have acquainted myself with countless individuals who have had to bear the burden of a terribly broken and corrupt sytem. It is through 'listening' that I have come to the enevitable conclusion that Child Support Laws and Government interference can not be tolerated anymore.

  1. I pay child support and have for years i never quit to work under the table and now that i am disabled and am fighting to get Federal disability that i have paid into for years and cannot get because they deny everyone at first and i am also homeless to which my youngest is 18 now so everything is arrears and of course they have to charge interest in the state of California which comes out to be just about the principle so how is anyone suppose to be able to get a place to live or be able to get a bank account because as soon as you open one they start sending something to the bank that the bank has to pay $100 dollars for from your account even though you are paying child support which over draws your account and they also take every penny of your income taxes so you can never do anything to even be able to live. Once anyone see’s Child Support you cannot get anything you are automatically turned down for everything. sometimes you just want to cry because you have nothing at all. Thank you I am just tired of being broke in California

  2. I just got out of prison and doing all the right things but Tanf now wants 65% of my gross income. I can’t pay my rent, will lose my car and my job. I simply can’t afford it. They were taking 40 per week but now want more. If I lose my job and my car and no where to live how do they think they will get paid? They should take what you can afford and so a person keep their job why must they push everyone into poverty? This is inhumane to treat people like they are trash and no wonder so many return to prison they don’t let you do better they just keep stripping you of everything. Now this 65% increase??

    I am with you bro. I am paying child supports on two children for what seems forever.
    The oldest is going to turn 22 and the second is 20. My income was garnished from the beginning of the divorce. In addition I was forced to pay alimony for 6 years and all expenses of medical bills, daycare expenses for these years.
    Due to these oppresive, measures taken against me, my electric was shut down two three months, my water was shut down at the same time. I lived what one could not have imagined in this great country we call AMERICA as prisoner. My pasport was taken away from me and I could not afford anyways to go anywhere. My father and mother who live abroad were ill could not visit them due these huge burdens placed upon me.

    Yes, AMERICA family court must be changed once for good. Fire those lazy judges remove hurdiles that distroyed the very fabric of family ties! I continue to pay for my adult children not knowing when all these abuse would end. End financial doulbe standards know. Children can be supported till they reach 18 years old but there many tricks at the ex’s disposals to remove kids out of schools, to holding the back so that that they never graduate on time, up to taking the shopping each day, so that they never work to their potentials.

  4. System definitely needs to be reformed. Each case should have provisions to be reviewed individually and rules that are in place can be overridden by administrators due to circumstances presented. You can’t expect to comply with payments if either your mobile service requires you to drive AND a current unstable part-time job has multiple chances to transfer into one that is stable with more hours and higher pay – but requires a license.

    Right now, their hands are tied and lower level workers have to sadly comply or face risks.

  5. I agree I owe 8000 in child support i am disabled and fighting for ssi i have no income i have been homelless for several yrs prior due to them taken my license and not having a b-certificate spent about 10 yrs fighting with hawaii and the dmv for id and b- certificate neither one would give one without already having the other a real catch 22 so i couldnt work they dont let me have visitation and wont even let me have her because of housing which i would have had if they hadnt took my license. in okc,ok.
    this has affected my credit . i live everyday just fighting to get through each month alive. u know shelter food extra.
    child support laws need to be changed they should not affect some ones right to drive or buying a gun or affect the credit because of money hungry goverment officials i thought the goverment was there by the people for people not the goverment for the government this has become a dictatorship not a decmocracy sadly.

    The system has bankrupted my husband. It has caused lots of stress on me. And our daughter is not considered. He literally is being forced to play favorites with his children. And he still has to pay his EX for their two grown children. It’s nothing but tax free alimoney!
