I have 5 children and 3 of them have different fathers. Of these 3 men only 1 pays child support and thats because it's taken out of his check. At first he was ordered to pay $50 dollars a month but I was able to have it raised ( he was mad) but he never calls his son and my son sees him only because he makes it his point. The other 2 men are ordered to pay $50 a month and wont. One has payed a whole $7.21 in the last 15 years and the other has payed only because he is arrested and bonded out and we ( the mothers) get child support from the bond. Neither of the fathers are active in the kids lives unless it's convinent for them and they lives no more than 20 minutes from there kids. My youngest sons father lives maybe 5 blocks from him and still doesn't call or see him or any of his other kids at that. My daughters father saw her on thanksgiving for the first time in 3 yrs. They are so sorry. My kids love their dads so much and these sorry MF's don't even act like they exist half the time. I try so hard not to say anything bad about them, but sometimes I just want to let my kids know. I'm thinking about moving away because I'm tired of my kids being in the same area and not seeing them, I feel like they're fathers causing more damage in their lives by being in the same area and not giving a F***. I'm not sure what to do.

hey...I have this problem with the fathers of both my children. My oldest is seven and his dad left when I was preggo; we haven't heard from him since, etc, etc. I know it sucks. I don't really have any advice for you, just wanted you to know that you're not the only mama out there with baby daddy issues. Good luck to you.
