Inland Revenue - It's our job to be fair?

This morning I got the dreaded letter from IRD Child Support, telling me they are increasing my payments again. This basically means they've increased my payments by $10/week over the last year. This is without my income having increased. Apparently they made a mistake some time in the past, and now I'm expected to pay for it.

How about some laws that allow non-custodial parents to have some say in how their financial contribution can actually be used to benefit their child?

Contrary to popular opinion, we are not all irresponsible payment-dodgers who don't care. But we -are- powerless to participate freely in the upbringing of our children in any real, constructive way. And that is wrong. So wrong.
