ONE MORE REASON FOR MEN OF 100s NOT TO ENTER INTO SEPARATION AGREEMENTS, COURT STIPULATIONS OR SIGN OR MAKE ANY APPEARANCE IN PERSON

NEW YORK FORCES AGED PARENTS TO SUPPORT MID-AGED CHILDREN

These states have specific statutes that give courts the authority to order college support 1: Alabama, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, South Carolina and Washington. (Source: American Bar Association, Tables Summarizing the Law in The Fifty States, Family Law Quarterly, 1998).

Do you want to admit on reflection how you could have been so stupid to sign away to a assembly-line judge and crooked lawmakers the decision whether your children would profit from college years ahead?

Colleges, of course, profit from this manipulation of divorced children. Look at college boards of trustees. Judges and lawyers receive a stipend for sitting on them and do nothing but damage. The college in turn grants them honorary degrees although they had only one original idea in their entire life and that was wrong.

The law says courts may not use duress. Do they? Well, here and there. Just donít sign anything especially after it is explained to it. Thatís like asking AOL to explain their privacy policy to you.

WATCH OUT NEW YORK FATHERS

New York is one of only fifteen states that obligates fathers automatically to pay college tuition for a child to Harvard or Dartmouth who managed to get through high school without passing one Regents exam. And these tests are routinely rigged downward. Their intent is to qualify as many students as possible. Higher education creates hundreds of thousands of tenured jobs and redistributes billions of hard-earned taxpayer income to upper class radical professors who prepare your child for nothing as well as a lifelong need for psychoanalysis, the "Piltdown man" fraud of the 20th century.

A supposed early species of human being postulated from a skull allegedly found in a gravel bed in about 1912 but determined in 1953 to be a fake constructed from a human cranium and the jawbone of a judge.

Universities and their professors have a strong financial interest in creating as large a captive audience as possible. That is why only the costs of higher education and professorsí salaries and medical costs have zoomed up so obscenely while the rest of the economy has been relatively inflation-free.

IF YOU HAVE A "GENIUS" IN NEW YORK MAKE SURE YOU STAY MARRIED OR DOESNíT THIS VIOLATE "EQUAL PROTECTION" AS WELL AS COUNTLESS SUPREME COURT DECISIONS RECOGNIZING THE RIGHTS OF PARENTS TO RAISE CHILDREN AS THEY SEE FIT

There is no reason why children of divorce should have their very own affirmative action program. They havenít been discriminated against. All they lost was their fathers. According to our nationís judges that is de minimus, Latin for of trifling value.

Fathers who head in-tact marriages can calculate the cost/benefit to the entire family of investing such a expensive expenditure as college tuition. They decide which of their children go to college if any and what college they go to.

Fathers who head in-tact marriages can cut off tuition and support if the child mistakes college for a playground. That is good for the child also. It puts pressure on him to produce and to enroll in a program that will make him self-sufficient so he can pay his father back J . That, in turn, will restore some competition to higher education, particularly the so-called "elite" schools where children of divorce tend to study Sanskrit or film.

Repeal of this highjacking legislation will help in-tact families who have children serious about pursuing academic work by squeezing colleges to reduce tuition and bloated salaries. It will stop protecting these overweight endowed institutions from the law of supply and demand.

Good students from in-tact families have to excel in high school. They apply for substantial scholarships which favor low income families as they should. Students from divorced families could get the same help on the same basis.

Phony learning will stop beginning treated as a form of punishment against fathers. Repeal of judge-imposed college tuition will help to stem the dumbing down of standards by the majority of universities who shamelessly appeal to the non-serious student and the non-paying spouse.

WORSE IS YET TO COME:
TAKE OUT YOUR CALCULATOR AND HAVE A HEART ATTACK.

Suppose you are paying $600 a month on an eight year old. That is $7200 a year and or $72,000 for ten years.

The higher education establishment lives in a world of its own. If you are unlucky enough and your child could picksósay--Amherst, the cost of per year just for tuition is is $39,000 or $160,000, without taking into account such necessities as eating, clothes, recreation (thereís a lot of that at our countryís schools). Yet U.S. News & World Report rates it"best value" liberal arts college.

Remember if the "6ft, 180lb" or "36-34-36" child "qualifies" who attends college continues to qualify child support. Now that your children can vote and drink and get married and show you where to get off your assets will be seized at over twice the rate when they were when they were really incapable of supporting themselves.

In New York you can be burdened whether you agree to this imbecility depending on the mental health of the court. Still, I say for the umpteenth time, if you are going to be hung, donít buy the rope and hire the carpenter to build the trap door.

REAL CLUELESS FATHERS CAN CONSPIRE WITH THEMSELVES TO PAY IN STATES NOT REQUIRING SUPPORT OF ANY KIND BEYOND AGE EIGHTEEN BECAUSE THEIR LAWYERS SCREW THEM OR THEY DONíT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SERVITUDE AND GENEROSITY.

In other states, be on your guard that you do not inadvertently agree to this obligation. Standard separation agreement and other forms just assume it. Be sure that clause is taken out of the your account before the software is printed and signed. Safer still use a computer generated form without it. Ignorance of the contents or lack of warning from your lawyer will not excuse your performance. And years later, you will realize the decision has been taken from you for what could easily prove to be the most expensive item in raising your "children."

Freely helping your child though college cements the bond between the non-custodial father and his child. Being required or volunteering to fork over such an obscene amount only teaches especially your daughter what pushovers men are and they she is entitled to anything she wants through use of the courts. Her future husband will thank you if you donít make an ass of yourself.

Besides freely given your son or daughter will work harder. You donít have to commit yourself years ahead in a legal agreement. You can inform them in their last years in high school. Perhaps you will want them to contribute by working to some of the cost. You can put money away with no one but you and the bank and the tax authorities knowing about it. Of course, it will be reported to your ex-spouse. You can make a condition of such an account that your ex-spouse not make the children aware of it. If she violates her word, close the account and pay the saved taxes on it. Then tell your children why you did it.
