I had to go to court and start paying her mother child support due to my son living with them at the time. I now have full custody of my son and my ex has owed me child support since last year and I have yet to see a dime. Life is fair-------right!!!!!!!!If she is under court ordered child support you will find the same derog info on her credit report that you find on deadbeat dads' credit report. Its as fair as it can get

He made that decision, obviously not thinking about the impact on his loved ones, especially his poor, innocent child. Had he paid his child support all along, or even some of it, he wouldn't have been put into a situation where he felt as though he had to take his own life to get out of it. The governmental agencies were hounding him because he wasn't satisfying his obligations to his child, not to them.I do feel bad for parents that have to pay child support and then use whatever's left over to keep themselves afloat, particularly those who barely get by as it is. My brother has to pay support and used to moan about it every day of the week. Now, he realizes that it's the only thing keeping his child fed some days - literally - so he's not as apt to complain and even gives money to his ex-wife on the side when he knows his son is without something. He gets no "credit" for this from the agencies but he doesn't care because because he knows his child has what he needs which is most important.If I didn't have my child in my care, how could I be upset by paying support because afterall I did bring her into this world and it's my responsibility to her, not anyone else. I would hate to think that I would be a deadbeat and not pay my support and her live without the things that she wants as a little girl, or worse, that she may not have the things she really needs.I want more for my daughter than I ever dreamed of having as a child. That's why I am working hard on getting my credit as near perfect as I can. I want to pass the most important things in life on down to her - the sense of personal responsibility and the importance of a good credit history.Couldn't have put it better myself

[Sure it wasn't a lot, only about $150 per month, but still........]Another case, a father I was representing was over $10,000 behind in his child support support. He called one morning about 9:00 a.m. because he just had his driver's license taken away for the delinquent support. By 10:30 a.m. that same morning I had his license back without him paying any additional money.So, it can work out a person just has to know what to do (I guess very similar to improving credit).
