Man faces jail time, fines for nonpayment of child support

A Pennsylvania parent who neglects to pay court-ordered child support may have his or her wages garnished, driver's license revoked, and/or possibly be sentenced to jail time and fines on top of the amount overdue. One man has been convicted for owing nearly $60,000 in child support and is currently awaiting sentencing.

One woman is telling her story of her attempt at getting physical custody of her two granddaughters, in hopes that it will help others in her position.
