Father jailed over child support

Financially supporting one's children can be challenging at times -- as money can be tight. However, non-custodial parents in Maryland and elsewhere who are ordered to pay child support still must meet their obligations, even if they are going through economic hardships. Failing to do so could have serious consequences.

In another state, a 42-year-old man was recently arrested for his lack of child support payments. He was not just behind by a few months, but by several years -- 12 to be exact. In total, he is said to owe over $30,000 in back child support. This is not the first time this individual has been arrested and charged for non-support.

Upon his arrest, he did pay $15,000 in a lump sum to the mother of his child. He still owes over $18,000, though. As such, he is being held at the county jail.

What happened in this particular case is something that never needs to occur. Non-custodial parents in Maryland who are struggling with child support obligations can take actions to help their situations. For instance, modifications can be sought if current support orders are too much to handle -- an experienced family law attorney can assist with this. On the flip side of this situation, parents who are supposed to be on the receiving end of child support payments but aren't getting paid do have the right to seek assistance with support enforcement. What happened in this case is just one form of enforcement; there are many others that may be utilized.
