Photos lead to arrest of father behind on child support

When two people create a child in Lake County, it is their responsibility to make sure that the child is cared for. When the parents do not live together, one parent must usually make child support payments to the parent who provides the primary care of the children. The support is used to pay for the everyday expenses of the child such as food, clothing, medical care and shelter. If the supporting parent fails to make these payments, it creates unfair burdens on the other parent, putting them in a financially difficult situation.

One father in New York faces multiple charges of criminal contempt and non-support for his failure to pay child support. The man, who owes $18,000 in back support, showed himself holding large sums of money in a couple of pictures he posted online during the previous year. Members of a local task force for child support placed him in custody.

It is unknown whether the man owes the sum to one woman or to more than one. It is also unknown how long it has been since he made any kind of support payment.

While most fathers are responsible for their children, unfortunately there are some who show open defiance and fail to meet the financial needs of the children they have. This not only impacts the other parent but the child as well, who may have to do without. Fortunately, there are legal options available to the custodial parent to address the issue. Speaking with an experienced attorney may provide information on the actions parents can take to collect the money owed to them and their children.
