I agree that deadbeat dads should have to pay support for their children (“Dads Should Pay,” Mar. 16-22), but so also should non-custodial mothers pay support for their children. And custody disputes should be settled “in the best interests of the children.” The tendency to award primary custody to the mother should be examined carefully.
