Child Support Quiz
Who said this ? When did they say it?
The further point that follows from that is that when non-custodial parents are asked to pay a substantially increased sum of money into the State’s coffers to offset the cost of benefits those non-custodial parents will find it that much more difficult to engage in voluntary support for their children in all those many different ways in which that voluntary support occurs—by means of the payment of pocket money, by buying an occasional pair of shoes, by paying for the occasional music lesson, and all those kinds of things in which, in fact, non-custodial parents in those situations frequently engage. From the evidence presented to the select committee it was quite clear that a number of such parents will find it very difficult to engage in such payments in the future. Therefore, of course, their children will be that much worse off as a consequence. The custodial parent will not receive any additional income; the non-custodial parent will lose income.
