When separated parents here in Georgia are not married -- either due to divorce or because they never were -- determining child support is very important to the well-being of the children. Payments are typically based on many factors, such as the income of each spouse and the number of children. There are times when circumstances dictate that a parent may no longer be able to pay the amount of child support required. When this occurs, support modifications may be warranted to ensure the children continue to receive the best care possible.
A man from out-of-state was recently arrested due to not paying his child support. Authorities say that this is the 12th time in a four-year span that he has been taken into custody. When he moved from one state to another, he was reportedly carrying a debt of over $100,000. That amount has apparently not dropped below that threshold since his move.
