Man convicted of three felonies regarding child support

Most parents want what is best for their children and are willing to work hard to provide emotional, physical and financial support to fulfill those needs. As many New Jersey parents can attest, however, it is not always easy to keep up with child support payments after divorce. The state understands this, though, which is why it allows a paying parent to request a stay or a decrease in payments if a problem arises.

A parent cannot simply stop making payments on his or her own volition. Depending on the situation, it could lead to felony charges. In fact, a 38-year-old man in another state recently pleaded no contest and was found guilty on three separate felony charges regarding unpaid child support.

The man is the father of five children and is said to have paid a mere $50 out of more than $100,000 that he owes. He may face several years in prison when all is said and done. The judge delayed sentencing and told the man he first wants to see pay stubs from an employer that show withholding for his court-ordered payments.

The man told the court he has been down on his luck as far as finding a good job is concerned. He also said he feels bad about the three situations. The judge basically told him that feeling bad is not good enough; he needs to follow up with action. An experienced New Jersey family law attorney can provide support to any parent who wishes to bring a child support situation to the court's attention.
