It extends even further in serving---by no means by accident---to
assist in physically isolating fathers from their children---whom they
also seek to nurture, and for whom they strive to provide a meaningful
parental presence. The tragedies there, indeed, are both to
individuals, and society as a whole.
Federal reimbursement of large fractions of caseload based operating
costs, engenders and sustains the state `IV-D agency' bureaucracies.
The cake-icing, `incentive' additions reward `efficiency': collected
dollars per dollar of operating expense---which perversely encourages
sucking the most out of the deeper pockets like Chang's, over helping
the children who may actually be in need.
The politically instilled, enveloping, witchhunt climate---which
rivals that once promoted by Senator Joe McCarthy in a different
context---pretty much precludes conscientious criticism of the system,
by rendering it self-implicating and thus self-defeating.
Some higher courts when it's brought to them will restrain some of the
more lawless and reckless tendencies of the agencies and their close
collaborators in the trial courts---but then one has the California
appellate ruling, opining that a suspended driver's license is _no_
impediment to employment, since it doesn't bar travel as a passenger.
