Man pleads guilty in child support case

For many children of divorced parents, the breakup of the family is devastating. When they do not receive the basic necessities they require because of the lack of financial child support from the non-custodial parent, the additional burden can negatively affect those children for years to come. A father from a state outside Pennsylvania became the subject of federal criminal proceedings for nonpayment of child support.

Father seeks help from police in child custody case

Some Pennsylvania parents know the visitation rules in a child custody agreement are not always observed. There are cases when the parent chosen by the court to retain child custody runs into difficulty when picking up the child upon the conclusion of visitation. A recent attempt by a father and a police officer to gain physical custody of the father's child was met with outrage by a church's pastor and its congregation.

Amnesty for responding non-custodial parents paying child support

Pennsylvania non-custodial parents who are behind on their child support payments may want to take note of a program another state sponsored for their residents. The Child Support Offices of that state offered for the first time in 10 years amnesty to parents who were behind on their payments. They believed this would help those non-custodial parents get back on track in making an effort to provide for their children. While the program was offered statewide in August, two counties have extended the amnesty for another month.

County exceeds goals for child support collection

Pennsylvania is not the only state working hard to collect child support. County officials in another part of the country have exceeded goals for the past three years. They understand that there are some custodial parents who depend on a child support payment to be able to get the basic necessities for their children.
