State takes tax refund in error for non-payment of child support

Non-custodial parents who do not make the necessary support payments for their children are usually the ones who make the headlines. The public seems to find it less enthralling to read about a parent who has a stellar record in meeting his or her financial obligation. Pennsylvania parents may actually be interested to read about a man who has, in fact, paid child support for 17 years in providing for his son.

Man accused of forging papers to avoid paying child support

Whether the parents are married or not, both are obligated to financially support their children for 18 years, in most cases. When the noncustodial parent cannot pay court-ordered child support for some reason, seeking a formal modification should be the first step. However, some parents try to avoid making payments altogether. One Pennsylvania man apparently lied about injuries obtained in combat to avoid paying support and is now facing criminal charges.

Father's income not enough to pay child support

Some non-custodial parents in Pennsylvania know that there are months where it can be difficult to come up with the financial payments to support their children. Those who do not have a steady paycheck coming in on a regular basis may simply not have the money when child support payments come due, no matter how much they want to provide it. One man has been charged with criminal non-support for failing to make the child support payments for his 14-year-old daughter.

State offers program to help in paying child support

Some non-custodial parents in Pennsylvania are unable to make the monthly, court-ordered payments to support their children. Although they may desperately want to make those child support payments each month, the reasons may vary as to why it just cannot be done. Another state has a program that helps parents in their mission to financially support the children they helped bring into the world.

Actress increases monthly child support payment

Pennsylvania parents who have been through a divorce and the subsequent financial support arrangements for their children know that the support payments are partially based on the income of the non-custodial parent. When the income changes, often the amount of child support does, too. Actress Jodie Sweetin has recently made changes in her child support payments, thanks to the popularity of her new television show.

Estranged wife wants six figures in monthly child support

Many Pennsylvania custodial parents know how crucial it is to get financial support from their ex. Child support not only helps a child get the necessities of food, shelter and medical essentials, but sometimes there is enough to pay for private schools and extra-curricular activities. The estranged wife of actor Mike Epps is requesting a sizable amount of child support each month to provide for their two daughters.

Ex accuses Jose Reyes of not paying fair share of child support

It is fast approaching the start of the Major League Baseball season. Pennsylvania fans familiar with MLB star Jose Reyes may be interested to hear that he is being sued by an ex for child support. The bitter child support battle began after he served a 51-game suspension for an alleged domestic abuse accusation by his current wife.

Talent agent looking at paying spousal support for six more years

Some Pennsylvania divorced residents know the actual divorce filing is just the beginning. If one spouse owes child or spousal support for a number of years, it can seem never-ending. A judge has recently ordered talent agent and current Lady Gaga boyfriend, Christian Carino, to pay his ex-wife hefty monthly sums in spousal support.

Father makes discovery after paying child support

Most Pennsylvania non-custodial parents follow through on the responsibility of financially providing for their children because they realize the importance of doing so. The custodial parent is obligated to take that child support and use it for food, medical and other needs required by the child. One man discovered some disturbing news after paying nearly $100,000 in child support.

Father owes sizeable amount in child support case

Pennsylvania parents who have custodial rights over their children know how important financial support is when raising those children. Non-custodial parents who do not pay child support are often sought by law enforcement. One man has been apprehended and  jailed after evading police and his ex-wife for five years. Officials say the man owes his ex over $200,000 in child support.
