Professional boxer owes substantial amount of child support

Child support is an emotional topic for single Pennsylvania parents who need extra money to adequately provide for their children but who are not receiving it. It is bad enough when a non-custodial parent is also struggling to come up with the money, but it is outright frustrating when he or she makes more than enough to meet the dollar amount set by the court yet refuses to pay. This is allegedly the case for a professional boxer who owes nearly $800,000 in child support.

Child support not a current problem for pro football player

Non-custodial parents who fail to provide any or enough child support seem to be never-ending problems for both custodial parents and the children concerned. Pennsylvania fathers may be glad they are not in the same child support situation as professional football cornerback Antonio Cromartie. He could be cut from his team at any time, leaving him struggling to pay a staggering amount of support to the mothers of his children.

Man risks going to jail if child support deposit is not paid

Each state, including Pennsylvania, has its own laws pertaining to child support payments. A man in another state is facing jail time if he does not make a payment of at least $500 toward the over $50,000 he owes in child support. The judge in the case has given him a month to come up with that payment, or he will go back to jail for 90 days.

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.

Seminar helps men with child support and other parenting issues

Many fathers who no longer live with their children because of divorce want to do all they can to provide for the ones they love. Some may fall behind on their child support payments because of hard times, but they do their best to make up for it when they can. Pennsylvania fathers in this predicament may be interested to learn of a tool another state uses to help men, not only as they try to provide beneficial child support but also to be the most effective fathers for their children.

Bartender claimes he was hacked by ex-wife in child support case

Divorced parents in Pennsylvania know that child support arrangements between ex-spouses can be acceptable to both parties and problems throughout the duration of the agreements may be few. However others can be full of contention, as seen in a report of a bartender and his ex-wife. He claims she hacked into some of his online accounts to get information that she could use to have the courts increase the child support amount he is currently paying.

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.

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.

Two of the state's major cities also have the top rankings among cities for implementation of the child support recovery processes in the United States.
