The child-support evader. Unlike the other deadbeats, you might not want to avoid this one. Youâ€™ll want to be hot on the trail of an ex who refuses to financially support his children. Do everything in your power to legally get your money. And if you're dating someone who doesn't pay child support, rethink that choice. If your partner can't (or won't) take care of his kids, what makes you think he's going to take care of you? It may be only a matter of time before he tries to hit you up for a loan. Don't cast your pearls before swine.
