Change to the Child Maintenance Service

The current child maintenance service needs reassessment and policies changed. The original service was implemented to assist mothers financially when fathers would not take responsibility for children they had brought into the world. But this service now provides mothers who are disallowing fathers to be a part of their childs life, to financially gain and use against them legally. I have read stories about men who have committed suicide over the financial strain this system has brought to their current family because an ex partner is using the child maintenance system as a weapon against them. I am currently in one of these house holds that is under financial pressure because an ex partner is out to gain revenge for the break up and disallowing a father to be more involved in his daughter life. A father that has gone through court to gain visitations and spent thousands for a few days a month! A mother that is fully aware if she agrees to increased visitations then she will financially suffer due to the child maintenance service. May I add the mother is a high earner and this is not taken into consideration along with fathers current outgoings when calculations for monthly maintenance is made. Women are using this legal service as a weapon to gain revenge on ex partners. I am all for this system to work for women who have been left running a house hold for their child and fathers who do not take responsibility but the system does not work for both parties. I would like the whole system to be reviewed before more tax paying and law abiding British citizens are put in financial jeopardy due to this outrageous system. Please support these fathers who want to see and support their children without legally bankrupting them.
