Some Facts On Child Support Collection

The Orlando Sentinel ran this story by Kathleen Parker on new information released on child support collection, and the different ways that it has been presented in the media. One interesting fact that Kathleen dug up (which wasn't reported on in the news articles she read) was that there are more "deadbeat moms" than "deadbeat dads," with custodial fathers receiving only 48% of their child support, while custodial mothers received 60% of their payments on average. Another set of interesting facts: "83 percent of divorced parents who have joint custody and regular contact with their children paid their support in full. By comparison, only 36 percent of parents with neither visitation nor joint custody paid any child support. Can anyone say 'Bingo?'"
