Please no bashing or arguing just thought this would be a good discussion and interesting to hear everyone's thoughts.
So I know there are many here that think the government should make changes to the CS payments. IMO I think that the cost of a child should be a base cost and then go from there, so say they think that a child from ages 1-5 costs $200 a month then that is what it should use for all paying parents then do the care deductions etc if the paying parent cant pay it racks up a debt. This way just because Johnny was born to a paying parent that makes 30,000 a year doesnt mean he is any cheaper to care for then the child born to a 100,000 child nor the 100,000 dollar child more expensive, it should be based on the needs of the children where special needs kids will be a different bracket. This would be straight forward and a lot less hassle for everyone involved, there was an article somewhere I read that paying parents are simply not getting better paying jobs because it would actually mean they would bring home less after CS that excuse would go out the window with this plan.
I think that is the custodial parent uses CSA to collect there should be a fee as I read another article that says the CSA costs tax payers a lot more money then they collect, if they charged a fee this would encourage people to not have to deal with them and deal with each other, of course if abuse is n the equation this would make it more difficult.
