More right to father's who PAY child support

This petition had 130 supporters

The Child Support Agency needs to make urgent changes for fathers who do pay Child Support.

Some of my issues include:

1: The other party (mainly the mother) can ring the agency and report any allegation she like & does not have to provide any evidence to support her claim. This then means the other party (mainly the father) will have to provide time consuming evidence to prove the claim wrong. In our situation she has tried this 3 times and failed all 3, however they still continue to listen to her.

2: The amount of child support should be based on the fathers earning at the time of separation and only increase by CPI amount yearly! Why is it the more the father earns the more money the mother receives? The father can never get ahead in his career if every promotion he will pay a large percentage of that going to the mother. Because the father works harder to receive promotions DOESN'T MEAN THE CHILD COSTS MORE MONEY.

3: If the mother intentionally withholds contact then she needs to be penalised. She is not supporting a meaningful relationship between the father and child. Doing this actually means she gets MORE child support amount as % of care drops. She can do this regardless of court orders. If she intentionally withholds contact then she should be penalised financially.
