Something needs to be done about Monroe County Domestic Relations in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. They seem to only cater to the custodial parents without regard to the non-custodial parents that have to live also. They need to stop letting the custodial parents cry poverty and keep driving up the support amounts of the non-custodial parents to the point that they can't survive on their own. Some of these non-custodial parents are left with barely enough money to support themselves or spouses and other children, while the custodial parents are living a lavish life. The worse part about the entire child support system is the non-custodial parents can't prove that their child support is not being used on the child(ren). Domestic relations doesn't seem to care where the money goes as long as it's being paid and the non-custodial parents are suffering with the label "DEADBEAT". Domestic relations used to have a percentage of the non-custodial parents income that they would base the support amount on but no longer have that and just continue to suck the life out of every non-custodial parent out there. Something needs to be done before every non-custodial parent loses everything they have including the bond with their child(ren) or wind up living under a bridge somewhere because they have no money left to support themselves or their families.

Especially when there are custodial parents like my husbands ex-girlfriend. She took my husband back to court for MORE child support just because he took her to court for HIS share of custody of his son. She lied to the support master and told her that she brought him back because she needed help with Day care and Doctor bills. When the support master left the room for a couple of minutes to copy some paper work his ex-girlfriend looked at him and said "You know the REAL reason I brought you back into court for more support is because you took me for custody if you wouldn't have done that we wouldn't be here right now".

What is so wrong with a father going for his legal right of some kind of custody of his son? I don't see a wrong in that at all. I am e-mailing anyone that I think that can help to stop women like her because she just took money away from our daughter that my husband and I have together out of spite. I have already got an e-mail in with the monroe county commisioner and she has already responded to my e-mail and is willing to help. SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE TO STOP THESE WOMEN!!!!!!

MCDR Another rude agent

AUTHOR: schmitty345 - ()

I am sick and tired of calling a child support office and the agent is extremely rude.  I did nothing to you to be rude and the only reason I am now being rude is because you were.  If you dont like your job get a new one. 

This lady said that I am going to court because I am not there for my child.  I said excuse me I am sorry that I have always paid my child support if you would actually look at my pay stubs and see how much I make then you could see that there is no way for me to pay that much and actually be able to live on my own with my other 3 kids and wife.  I said it is also not my fault that they will not let me see him and that they all ready take 60% of my check so that I can not actually travel up there to see him.  Even if I had a visitation schedule I would not be able to afford to travel because it is so expensive.  I live in Georgia so there is no way for me to pay for anything after 60% is gone.  

It just kills me that I am paying everything that I can and I am still behind even though it is taken automatically out of my check from my employer and extra opn top of that because I cant keep up and actually be able to provide for my family now.  I am going to have to get a second job just to be able to do anything with my kids now. 

I was also told that I could do a phone hearing but everything must be faxed in before the court date.  My court date is in two weeks and I just got the paper work.  I then called the office in Georgia where the original case was handled and they said sorry cant do anything for you.  Now I see why there are so many dead beat dads.  If you get just a little behind they want to suspend your license.  This whole system needs to be fixed by congress and we need real men not just men that are trying to get out of paying child support because I take care of my kids to the best of my ability but when I cant even live with my family now it is a little ridiculous.

Basis of support determination

AUTHOR: J.T. - (United States of America)

When I went for my child support meeting I brought all copies of my pay stubs and anything else that showed my income. Domestic Relations never even looked at the copies I brought with me. They asked me if my job was listed as full time and I told them that it was BUT I was getting maybe 32 hrs. a week.

They did not care that i was making only part time hrs. and in turn based my support payments on 40 hrs. They need to start paying attention to those documents, that, they tell you ( non-custodial parents ) to bring with you to these meetings and stop basing the child support on whether your job is full or part time.

MCDR the true un-fair office

AUTHOR: 1234509876 - (United States of America)

I am a very long time payer into the system in Monroe County D/R. I had no problem being 100% involved with my child's life & willfully payed when in mid 90's the former system denied my ex, i gave instead. If i knew now what was going to happen too me since in no way would i have given anything. A whole year & 1/2 after the decision was made & the child support was given at a much higher rate than was said, my ex drags me back into MCDR & there is a new sheriff in town & the word was she is giving away support & custody at a huge rate. With no new change all my ex said was "I don't think the court knew what i was asking for" during her saying this the new sheriff was not paying any attention & was working on new numbers, not only was support went through the roof they added spouse support. After all the months after the 1st hearing in which my ex was flat out denied, i was told "If you don't agree with the order you can fight it" in turn i lost, mind you on 2 major issues, nothing new was giving & all the money i was giving was erased as if it never happened int he tune of almost 10K, i would have never gave anything over if i knew they could change this order based on a huge lack of info. They also dragged me into court on a false issue & had the nerve to say i was behind when the matter was already settled.

Fast forward my ex has made a living on bringing me into this system for personal gain only, they live just fine & i struggled through all the years in some cases sleeping in my car at work because i could not afford gas for my car till i got my little pay, also refuse me rights to be with my child, in & out so many times, they got to know my ex & the people by name there, in one case i was there when the woman at the counter ask how our child was, they even knew our child. Our child has become of age now & i was contacted by mail saying support would be stopped if the child does not meet some of the standards  listed, i was only cc, i was never contacted after, now support continues & i have been denied all contact seeing my child.

Yes there is a place for this system in every county but this office is run by woman only and even in the extreme cases they will never side any way near fairness, i never denied the support money needed, but i have been denied too many times, now that the tide may be turning i bet they wont again see me as a co-parent as they preach, they will continue this path & let the ex get everything they want.

I must agree the books need too be looked at on a case by case basis but this office seems too hold all the power over people, good people that pay but every one get the same treatment there if you on the pay side, not the receiver & yes the receiver should be held accountable for where the funds go, how they are spent & progress on their life so they don't cry poverty when they expect a raise.
