Parents pushed to the limit
By GEOFF TAYLOR – Waikato Times | Saturday, 11 August 2007
Many parents believe they get the sharp end of our child support system
and end up with a burden they struggle to sustain. Geoff Taylor reports.
“She is my flesh and blood and I love her dearly,” says Lovich.
“I do, however, have to question why it takes $177 a week to feed and clothe her.”
Shouldn’t Lovich accept that child support is a fact of life? That it’s never going to be easy?
“I accept that but you should be able to live life without struggling to this extent.
“I’m sure there are a hell of a lot of other people out there in the same boat.”
