Am I a deadbeat dad since I pay child support but never see the child?

I pay enough child support to support the both of them, if that counts for anything.

    No, not a deadbeat but you are guilty of child neglect.

    Paying child support is only part of it. You actually need to be present in your child’s life. It’s good that you don’t let your kid starve, but your kid is not gonna remember all the child support you paid. He/she will remember what it’s like growing up without a father. You’re definitely not father of the year.

    Deadbeats don't pay.

    Technically no, but you are a loser in my opinion for not being involved.
