Failure to pay child support can lead to hardship

Massachusetts law regarding payment of child support can be difficult to navigate. It may be even more challenging to collect child support across state lines. Failure to make child support payments may result in a court seizure of bank accounts and garnished wages. Recently, one man has been faced with hardship after falling delinquent in child support payments.

The man was issued a warrant for arrest in Kentucky after failure to make regular support payments. He was later stopped in Texas when he made a traffic violation. He pulled over the vehicle initially before reportedly running away from police officers when he was questioned.

The man's 5-month-old child was left in the vehicle strapped into a car seat when he fled the scene. The police on scene caught and apprehended the man after they called for backup. He later told officials that he abandoned the infant because he feared that he would go to jail. The man is now charged with evading arrest and felony child abandonment.

Individuals struggle with unmanageable support obligations every day. In addition to court ordered payments, there are significant financial and tax issues that go hand in hand with settlement of child support issues. Whether an individual is in pursuit of collecting child support or trying to prevent issues related to payment, rights can be protected and professional support can be attained. Massachusetts law is constantly evolving and changing, and it is important to seek answers and trustworthy counsel to achieve resolution of these matters.
