Interstate Child Support Guidelines

What did FASR and PSI know, and when did they stop knowing it? - Interstate Child Support Guidelines.html

California has the most outrageous child support guideline in the nation demanding 25% of a parent's net income for 1 child, 40% for 2, and 50% for 3.

Using the child support calculators, provided by, the amount of child support demanded by all states can be compared by choosing a hypothetical case. The case that follows is identical to "Case D" described in the US House of Representatives, Committee on Ways and Means, GREENBOOK in support of the interstate child support guidelines (Table 8-2) reported by Pirog, Klotz, and Buyers from the Institute of Family and Social Responsibility (FASR)

Case D:

Figure One shows the child support guidelines for 1, 2, and 3 children using the child support calculator from using only the incomes from "Case D" described above. (You must pay to find out how much you will owe in Vermont and New Hampshire, which eliminates these states from this analysis).

Figure Two shows the 2 child guideline presented to the Ways and Means Committee by FASR using all details outlined in "Case D" described above. The 2 child guideline is subtracted from the FASR 2 child guideline to determine the error between them. For example: FASR reported California demanding 18% of an NCPs net income for 2 children while reported 40%, yielding an error of 22%.

Child support guidelines vary from state to state, and are derived by many strange and disturbing methods. Rest assured that there is no scientific approach that is currently used that is not derived from opinions from people who are in no position to know the truth. There is no system by which actual data is collected to measure the cost of raising children.

Many states require assistance in determining the amount of child support that they will force a parent to pay. There are companies and individuals that offer to help states maximize the profits that are paid by parents and the federal government in implementing their "Family Law money machine". For example Maurine Pirog-Good of FASR (Bloomington, IN) has helped Alaska with their child support guideline, while Robert Williams of Policy Studies Inc (PSI) (Denver, CO) has helped 49 states, Canada, Australia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.

These independent entities are free to


Every states child support guideline should be the same as the TANF amount for any particular family in each state.

The outrageous child support guidelines that are imposed on parents across the nation are being completely hidden from the Legislative Branch. Our elected officials are powerless to identify the common denominator regarding welfare reform with this type of deception. It is no wonder that Congress shakes a finger at deadbeats in California for not paying 18% of their pay for 2 children when, in reality, these victims of fraud are demanded to actually pay 40%.

The outrageous child support guidelines that are imposed on parents across the nation are enforced by state CSE agencies who operate under the color of federal law (USC 42 666) depriving the rights and privileges of NCPs across counties, across states, and across oceans. NCPs are forced to endure the "Family Law Stigmata" as a result of independent entities poisoning the antidote to the welfare disease provided by the federal government in the state's exploitation of children for money.

Mr. Untershine is currently using the teachings of Werner Heisenberg and Henry David Thoreau to expose Family Law in California as the exploitation of children for money and the indentured servitude of heterosexual taxpayers who dare to raise children in this country.

Family Law Stigmata - The following sequence of events insure federal funding by promoting welfare

Splinters in your mind driving you mad

Slashing the backbone of your support

Forcing you to carry a heavy burden

Attached to this burden you cannot feed yourself

Attached to this burden you cannot transport yourself

Attached to this burden you must languish

Attached to this burden you are stuck inside
