Father owes more than $1 million in child support

Father owes more than $1 million in child support

Date: December 27, 2012

There is a wide variety of issues to address while filing for a divorce in Illinois.Child support remains one of the main concerns. One parent may get custody of the child, while the other may be ordered to pay child support. This payment is used to ensure that the child’s health, education and other basic necessities are not compromised. But sometimes a person may not be able to pay child support and, in extreme cases, may be arrested for default.

Recently, a man was arrested in the Philippines and deported back to the United States after he failed to pay $1 million in child support. According to sources, this man was earning almost $600,000 per year in the 1990s through his automobile business. Unfortunately, the business suffered losses later.

The father was indicted in 2009 after he failed to pay child support. He was repeatedly served with arrest warrants after that until he fled the country. He owes child support to two ex-wives for three children.

According to reports, this man was living in Thailand for some time. He later traveled to the Philippines, where he was arrested for failing to have proper identity documents. The man was deported back to the U.S., even though we have no extradition agreement with the Philippines.

He has been termed as the most wanted delinquent parent on the Department of Health and Human Services website. According to the man’s mother, however, he didn’t have the money to make the required payments.

When making a child support decision in Illinois, the court considers the income of the parent in question. As time goes on, however, a parent may not have the same financial situation he or she had during the divorce. If the parent does not make the child support payments, the parent may face serious penalties, including jail. To avoid this outcome, noncustodial parents should take the proper steps to secure a child support modification.
