A Pennsylvania Man was arrested for owing more than $ 34,750.00 in back child support. According to reports, the man, a former insurance agent and state legislator, failed to appear for numerous court dates prior to his arrest.
Massachusetts Probate and Family Courts take child support arrearages very seriously. Consequences for owing back support can include, in more serious cases, a committed jail sentence. An experienced family law attorney can advise how best to collect court ordered support payments. If you owe past due child support, you should consult with a lawyer to protect your rights.
