money hidden, could not pay the full amount of his child support payments?

child_support_personQ) A Mr. G…n E….., sometimes of Ca….., sometimes of Limestone has a half dozen kids on partial child support. He is also presently involved in a lawsuit against the daughter of his ex-girlfriend for having stolen $ 90,000 from him. Why is it that if he had this amount of money hidden away he could not pay the full amount of his child support payments? Anonymous

A) I do not have access to specific information about individuals and their child support cases. However, in general, there could be various reasons why a noncustodial parent is not paying the full amount of their child support obligation, such as financial difficulties, unemployment, or other personal reasons. It’s important to note that failing to pay child support can have serious legal consequences, and the child support agency can take enforcement actions to collect past-due child support, including wage garnishment, seizing tax refunds, or even placing liens on property.

Parents who fail to pay court-ordered child support for the care of their children put an unnecessary strain on the custodial parent and the children, as well as on agencies that are tasked with enforcing these matters. Although most child support cases fall under State jurisdiction, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) plays an important role in aggressively pursuing parents who fail to pay court-ordered child support.
