A / the poster is already paying.

B/ the posters x is throwing allegations
and apparently turning kids against him.

C/ here we go again with a situation of
money wanted but making it awkward for
the payer.

D/ we have a situation where somebody
wants somebody else to pay for their
previous mistakes.

Lets forget about the punch up and concentrate on the fact of caring for somebody. The best way of PROVING that you are not a nasty person as far as allegations are concerned is not to show that you fit the allegations being thrown at you.

In time the accuser looks stupid.

The poster does want to pay, for his children. He is just financially constrained so he's looking at after over a decade of paying for someone else's child, not paying for that child and prioritising his own children.

In my book, if you have paid for someone else's child for over a decade you get a free pass on the are you a nice big hearted person test as clearly, you are.

'Someone else's child'. So you think it is ok to treating a child as your own until the relationship is no longer viable. Poor child.

No that's what you said, I'm stating a biological fact.

I think everyone who decides to have a child should be forced through threat of prison to support that child to the best of their abilities.

If you have the capacity to look after someone else's child then great and that's a really good thing you are doing. If you then find yourself in a position where that is not possible anymore then you should not be threatened with prison for not being able to continue doing that and you should default to your moral and legal obligations to support your own biological children.

In this country prison is not an option for non-payment of child maintenance .

Child maintenance is payable by a mother or father or adoptive parent, no others are liable.

The law is the law opinion is worthless.

Child maintenance options have a free telephone line if anyone want`s it from the horses mouth.
