Father Owes $500,000 in Child Support

Fox News: Authorities in Michigan say a man fathered 14 children with different women and owes more than $530,000 in unpaid child support.

The Flint Journal reports 42-year-old Thomas Frazier was jailed Thursday. Court records say he owes six years of support payments.

The newspaper says the unemployed man could be held for 90 days if he doesn't pay $27,900.

Frazier says he thinks he fathered only three of the children and that it's unrealistic for authorities to expect him to pay child support that was $3,000 a month at one point.

Frazier remains held at the Genesee County Jail. It wasn't immediately clear if he had a lawyer who could speak for him.

I think this is pure and utter bullsh*t. Sorry. But first of all he has the right to establish paternity, does he not? I understand that while they are some deadbeats out there, not all men are. I’ve seen a lot of women abuse this service as a means of revenge against a man who scorned them, or as a sole means of financial support for themselves. What really gets me are the mothers who cry in court saying they are unable to even feed their child(ren), yet they refuse to allow those same kids to spend any time with their father. But the money spends well right? Wouldn’t actually sharing your child with the other parent help your costs finacially? And by the way, yes I am a mom of 5. I can tell you that should my husband and I ever divorce I am fully able to support all 5 of my kids financially myself. Too many times, the fathers are castrated in court and the mothers walk away from their end of the obligation scott free. There needs to be equality.

i understand that not all men are deadbeat dad’s,but they are the exception not the a mother of four, i know of what i ex-husband was twenty when i became pregnant with my oldest son.that son was my husband’s twelveth child.the last i heard the number had risen to sixteen,and he has never paid child support on any of them.if men don’t want to pay child support then either don’t be in where you shouldn’t,or get a vasectomy.

nana70438, in your situation, i do agree with you. 12 kids by the age of 20 and still going is irresponsible, and not just financially. from my own point of view, i watched my brother nearly get sent to prison over a 12.00 arrearage he owed from a medical bill (prescription). yet when he called his ex about putting the kids on his health insurance (which would have covered everything), he got her answering machine and a return phone call from the state police advising him not to call her again. i think there needs to be a nuetral advocate. that being said, i do full agree with you, don’t have them if you can’t feed them.

nana70438 or don’t get married to a nagging woman who will probably dump you for greener pastures and hand you the bill, the notice to vacate the premises, a few nights in jail and the visitation order. Oh, and a new daddy for the kids.

I married someone who I thought was the man of my dreams and he turned out to be an abuser. He claims to his friends that don’t know me that I abused the system etc and trapped him into getting pregnant for his money. What money? He was broke when I married him and even more so when he decided he didnt want to work anymore. When he moved, he atleast still paid child support for a while but now has decided he doesnt want to do that anymore and is falling behind. Please don’t judge someone until you know both sides.
