A man who doesn't pay child support and also disrespects his baby mama in front of the children and disregards her feelings. A man who believes that having a job means that any form of child care is not his job. And who gets 'overwhelmed' by taking care of his children for a few hours but doesn't understand that the mother takes care of them night and day with no breaks.
Mom: can you please help me by giving me a break?
deadbeat dad: give YOU a break? I work all day. All you do is sit on your ass at home and watch kids. Sounds easy to me.

(then on seperate day when man is watching kids)
Deadbeat dad: this kids are driving me crazy. I'm so tired.
Mom: you've only been with them for an hour.

Get the deadbeat dad mug.
A father who does not provide for a family that he was part of creating. Does not have morals or a responsible enough nature to realize how difficult he is making life for his family.
My husband works and keeps his money to himself and decides what he is going to pay and when. He wanted to get married, he wanted to have children and now that we do he isn't stepping up to the plate to ensure our future. I am 6 months pregnant, we have a two year old and I work over 40 hours a week trying to make ends meet. For 4 months he made excuses as to why he was not making any money and yet he takes all the credit playing himself out to be the provider. There should be a definition for a dead beat husband who causes his wife so much grief that she wants to get a divorce and then he becomes the deadbeat father.

(n) A male who fathers a child and makes no contributions to its rearing, providing neither emotional nor financial help to his family. Often unmarried to the child's mother or divorced, usually resented by the offspring.
1. Mary's father skipped town when she was five and she never heard from him again. What a deadbeat dad!
2. My dad's always off drinking or gambling. The lousy deadbeat's never around.

One of the lowest forms of life on Earth. An incompetent, milquetoast loser. A father who refuses to be a man and take responsibility for caring for his children. If he’s divorced, he refuses to pay child support. In the meantime, his children and wife become resentful toward him.
The justice system and prosecuting attorneys are right in wanting to incarcerate any deadbeat dad. They should be locked up with the key thrown away until they take responsibility for the children they have brought into this world.

A man who is totally incompetant in raising a child to be grown up fully potentialed, and fullhearted. Deadbeat dads find some sort of energy in commiting one or all of the 7 deadly sins. Mongrels such as these should fire in the pits of Hell and suck on rectum for aslong as they shall live when calling themselves, "The Honorable Parent".
My dad slams a woman ONCE unbridaled, is willing to pay the abortion fees to kill the non-existant child, lives in a seperate town for more then half her life not talking to her, comes to visit whenever the hell he feels like it, barely pays child support each month, kisses her on the head and calls himself, "The Greatest Father In The Universe".

An irresponsible father who hasn't the decency to do his moral, legal and ethical duty to support his child or at least to offer token payments of child support according to what he can afford or explain why not and what his plan is to make it up in the future.
I wish my former son-in-law wasn't a deadbeat dad and that the next time he wanted to get a body piercing he'd send that money to his son.
