There are many reasons why parents count on child support, whether they need money to cover a child's medical needs or to pay for extracurricular expenses, among others. After all, raising a child can be very costly in Scranton, or anywhere else in Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, some people fail to pay child support, which can result in serious consequences such as fines and jail time. Whether a parent is owed back child support or has difficulty paying their child support, it is important to work towards a successful outcome and prioritize the best interests of the child.
Law enforcement officials in New Jersey recently took a 37-year-old man into custody over unpaid child support. According to authorities, the man owed over $80,000 and had four child support warrants in the county. Furthermore, the suspect also reportedly had two non-related warrants as well.
Authorities apprehended the man during a sweep conducted by Salem County officials. During the sweep, several other suspects were taken into custody for allegedly failing to pay child support, including a 35-year-old man who owed over $40,000 and a 34-year-old man who owed more than $37,000.
For people who are facing child support challenges, addressing the situation can seem complicated. However, child support problems should not be overlooked and there are a number of ways that people can deal with their predicament properly. For example, closely assessing the details of their situation and contacting an experienced attorney can help people resolve disputes, receive the money they are owed and create a fair child support agreement.
