If you could make up a CS system what would it look like?


Here is what I do if I could create the rules governing CS:


CS calculated soley on NCP's income (CP's income not a factor).

i like the Canadian system (from what i hear/know), where CS is calculated annually from NCPs tax returns to a standard %....and than each parents fair share of extras (section 8 in CA?)....ceasing for most kids at 18, 19 if still a HS student (similar to how social security death benefits end in US).


that seems fairest and easy/peasy to boot IMO.

You realize that not EVERY child has graduated from HS by the time they turn 18 right?

Actually I was still legally responsible for my son after 18 as long as he was enrolled and attending high school.

Look I understand CS is one of your favorite topics to debate. And that you feel a lot of CS laws are unfair. But at some point, you have to realize that no matter what the laws are, someone who is a good parent (whether CP or NCP) is going to get screwed. There is no perfect solution.

Obviously you believe that CS past the age of 18 is wrong. I personally believe that both parents have an obligation to provide that child with the opportunity to have a promising future, and that most children have no shot at that without at least a high school education. But either way, no matter where you draw the line, someone is screwed.

I didn't say it was a law to graduate or even attend
