'A Man in Illinois Has No Father Rights': Patch Comments of the Week
"Wanted for Child Support" post prompts vigorous debate on the south suburban Patch network.
In response to the post Wanted for Child Support Delinquency, April 6, several Patch commenters took issue with the way the system treats men.
Kevin Foster writes:
"If you are a man in Illinois, you have absolutely no father rights. Courts are so pro-woman it isn't even funny. Equality my pink butt."
James Wagner writes:
"How about posting the pictures and address of the vindictive, selfish, scorned "Ex" who continue to take the non-custodial parents to court who paid in excess of support owed??? Instead of wasting the taxpayers' and court system's time, and padding the bank accounts of these low life legalized thiefs they call "Divorce Attorneys"?
And Kathleen Austin writes:
"The article lists a woman, as well. There are many horror stories when it comes to child support issues and the governments way of dealing with it, and these stories come from both sides, and male and female alike. This is why positive change never occurs, everyone forgets THE most important thing. It's about the children."
