Father of 17 wanted by police for non-payment of child support

Any custodial parent in Pennsylvania knows how important it is to receive child support when trying to provide for his or her children. For some children, that payment may be the difference between having food on the table and going hungry. A man who has fathered 17 children is being sought by police for not making his child support payments.

The district attorney overseeing the case for the state against the father claims that most of those children are receiving some type of assistance from the state. He feels it is time for the man to step up and financially support all 17 children. Official attempts have been made to get the Facebook records of the father, who is reportedly a songwriter and rapper. The district attorney thinks the posts will show the father's intentions on providing for his children as well as give an idea of how financially stable he may be.

One of the mothers of the 17 children insists the man is a good father, and she has seen him interact with all of the children. She says he does provide support, although not through court-appointed channels. The man's own mother says he has to be taking care of them in some way because none of the children is in the foster care system. Once he is found, he will be facing one felony count per child and could serve up to 42 months in prison on each count.

It is generally a good idea for two parents to have a formal child support agreement that is approved by the court. If a future dispute over support conditions should ever arise, there will be a legal document by which both parties will be bound to abide. Pennsylvania parents who need assistance in determining the stipulations of such an agreement will want to find a professional who knows family law and can prepare a contract with terms beneficial to all involved.
