Readers in Ohio may be aware that one person recently won a huge Powerball jackpot. In fact, the Powerball jackpot was valued at $338 million. At the time that he won the lottery, the man was the non-custodial parent of his children. Three of the kids were the subjects of an order for child support, and the father was reportedly in arrears.
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.
