Man arrested for overdue child support

Children in New Jersey have needs, and that remains true whether their parents are in a relationship with one another or not. Even if the parents aren't able to get along, the most important thing is that children's needs are put first. That may mean that one parent is responsible for making child support payments to the other parent. Sometimes, the parent doesn't make those payments, whether he or she is doing so purposefully or because of financial struggle, and it can be difficult to get back on track. This is the question in the case of one man in another state who was recently arrested for not paying child support.

According to police, the man hadn't paid over $145,000 in child support. He was arrested after being pulled over by highway patrol. Someone called to report a drunk driver, and when authorities pulled over the man, they discovered the outstanding warrant for his arrest on the National Criminal Information Center database. He was taken into custody.

Authorities created a program to address the problem of nonpayment of child support in their area. They partnered with the local social services agency to determine the best course of action. In June alone, they arrested 16 people in the county and are optimistic that their efforts will help numerous children.

However this man's case turns out, it is important that court-ordered child support funds can be accessed to take care of the children that the payments are intended to cover. If a parent isn't making payments, for whatever reason, the receiving parent may want to consult an attorney. A New Jersey attorney with family law experience can work with a parent to determine the best way to move forward to ensure that the children affected are given proper care.
