  I’m a father of several children. I pay my support by being wage attached and working two (2) jobs both as a first responder since my employers do not offer benefits.  My kids are always first priority and my support is on time. The county of Delaware was not taking the correct amount and I went into arrears. Due to the “Rules of Procedure” you can have up to 58% of your wages garnished. The county further went on to freeze my accounts which cancelled my mortgage payment as well as all my bills. I’m unable to use my account and I’ve been charged over 150$ in late fees and processing fees.  I have my kids 50% of the time and cannot food shop for them, pay the mortgage to keep a roof over their head nor pay utilities for a reasonable standard of living. And now the money I saved for Christmas shopping is gone. When I questioned this I’m told “it’s the Rules of Procedure.”  So regardless of how hard you work, the state of Pennsylvania still punishes fathers. They destroy your credit, freeze your accounts and clearly use archaic formulas to take far more than is necessary for support. When so many studies reveal the importance of a father in a child’s life, the state of Pennsylvania sees that as unimportant and to only pay money and work more hours. With everything going on in today’s society the almighty dollar is what’s most important in this state. The support laws and rules need to be rewritten and fair for all fathers so they can afford to not only live but see their children.
