Readers in Ohio know that child support payments are mandatory once they are ordered. In fact, in most divorce cases where a minor child is involved, the noncustodial parent must pay child support. This money is intended to help the custodial parent with the care and support of the child.
Readers in Ohio know that for some custodial parents of children collecting child support from their kid's other parent can be a challenge. This child support collection challenge leads many in our state and elsewhere to seek the help of the court system to get the payments to which they are entitled. These efforts sometime end with penalties for the non-paying parent.
A man has recently gained fame as the father of 25 children. The story may be familiar to some in Ohio, as the man, who resides in another state, was ordered to court to address the reason why he has failed to pay much of his court-ordered child support. In fact, many of the mothers of the man's children appeared in court to assert that they had only been paid small amounts of child support in recent years.
