FOX Houston Does Special on Child Support & Custodial Dads

Some of you may remember several weeks ago in one of my weekly E-newsletters I asked for Texas custodial dads who receive or are supposed to receive child support. Many of you responded–so many, in fact, that the Houston FOX affiliate on whose behalf I wrote the notice told me they had to have a “cattle call” of all the dads. FOX ended up using three of the dads in the show (pictured, above right), and they spoke about their situations and their struggles.

While I have no complaint about what’s in the show’s clip of me, the totality of my interview was more nuanced. In the interview I also pointed to the many problems with the child support system, and explained that noncustodial moms sometimes fall victim to them just like noncustodial dads often do.
