Is it just me, but recently I have noticed how irritated I get when I hear women complain about their baby fathers lack of child support or otherwise, yet they refuse to take them to court.
Unless for reasons that the father of child is an abusive man who threatens the security of the child or mother - I don`t get it otherwise!
I finally took my ex to court, Once my daughter was 6 months old I started the process and am feeling so empowered now that I see the income of child support he is paying and the participation he has had to own up to in her life.
Because it took all the courage and moving past my own reasons and advocating for my child's rights, I understand now the importance!
I am speaking about women who REFUSE to take men to court - not ones who have made the attempt and didn't get child support in the end because the man didn't pay.
My annoyance is people who complain yet do nothing about it.
