Noncustodial Parents Not Fairly Treated

by Katelyn

We have joint custody but are the non custodial parents. We just went to court this last summer adjusting our visitation rights in order for us to spend more time with our child. The custodial parent always seem to make it difficult or had some excuse of why it wasn't a good time for the child to come and visit. We live in different states then the child and have always paid all transportation cost in order to see the child. This summer the court ordered for us to have more time with the child to where we could fly the child to visit at least once a month at our expense due to making more money then the custodial parent. We were excited. Then the custodial parent filed for more child support. We just received the calculations from the state and no where on it did it include. Travel expenses that we have to pay in order to see the child, the non custodial parent has another child now with their spouse and no where did it take calculations for the second child. I know most states account all biological children of the parent paying child support. In the summer we get the child seven weeks of the summer and the calculations did not include day care expenses we have to pay during the childs visit yet it did on the mothers calculation? We are confused of why these expenses would not be included in the calculations. With the amount the state has come up with not including the air fare and chaperone fee each way there would be no way we could afford to buy a ticket each month in order to get more time with our child. Is this something the courts even look at?

Missouri Child Support Custody -- Kathy H. vs Tyrone M.
by: AKA black

Why does the state of Missouri allow mothers to keep a their father away from thier child. Missouri is the wrost state to request equal custody!

The mother of my child refuses to allow me to have a relationship with my dauther, but continune to want support. Men in the state of Missouri or men who have children in the state of Missouri need to stand up and enforce father rights.

Noncustodial Parents Not Fairly Treated vs Visitation Rights

Katelyn, I agree with you because we share the same story, but the mother does not allow me to talk to my daugther and I live in California and they live in Missouri. Therefore, there is not much I can do because I do not have the money to pay an attorney to get visitation rights etc.

Increased child visitation travel costs

Many issues here. You stated you "had always paid all travel costs" and then your visititation was increased. If you did not bring up the issue of travel costs, the court assumed you had no problem paying it in the past and would not in the future.

Additionally, often, children are not allowed to be taken away from the state of the other parent for these exact reasons. That makes one wonder how initially the child and the non-custodial parent became so many miles away.

It is always easier to address these issues before or at the time, rather than after they have become sealed by the court.

The only recourse then is to appeal to the court, with concrete data, taking care not to create even further problems (such as increasing travel without increasing cost-sharing for travel).

A good child support lawyer should direct you as to an appeal that will not add additional problems to your situation. Attempting to go it alone often makes your problems greater.

Thank you for sharing your experience and good luck in the future.
