California's outrageous child support guideline leads the nation in driving noncustodial parents (NCP) into financial insolvency.

The California 3 child guideline exceeds the Temporary Aid to Needy Families (TANF) benefits by 28% of an NCP's net income (for NCP earning $4,400 / month).


TANF benefits across all states was extracted from Table 7-9 of the US House of Representatives, Committee on Ways and Means, GREENBOOK, section 7, entitled "Maximum Combined TANF And Food Stamp Benefit For Families Of One To Six Persons, January 1, 2000" provided by the Congressional Research Service

Child support guidelines across all states where found using the child support calculators from (You must pay to find out how much you owe in Vermont and New Hampshire, which eliminates these states from this analysis).

Figure One: Shows the monthly TANF benefits for each state regarding 1, 2 and 3 kids

Figure Two: Shows the monthly TANF benefits as a percent of an NCP's net income for each state regarding 3 kids and NCP earning $4,400 per month. The 3 child guideline is subtracted from the TANF 3 child benefits to determine the error between them. For example: California awards TANF benefits amounting to 22% of an NCPs net income for 3 children while reported California awarding a 3 child guideline of 50%, yielding an error of 28%.

The TANF benefits awarded by states, to families of various sizes, is the only baseline of data regarding raising children and has been arrived at by trial and error. The federal government pays 70% of the TANF amounts awarded to CPs by the state.

For example:


State guidelines that exceed their TANF amount insures the exploitation of children for money. It guarantees the CP will never be able to squander the error amount on their children, allowing the CP a substantial tax-free windfall for playing along with this state operated confidence game..

State guidelines that exceed their TANF amount guarantees the state TANF agency 70% of the TANF benefit money to transfer into the state's Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF)

State guidelines that exceed their TANF amount guarantees the state CSE agency 10% of the state guideline money to pay PSI to cook the books for their county agencies and pay FASR to lie about the state's child support guideline to the legislature.
