- NY Times: U.S. Agents Arrest Dozens of Fathers in Support Cases
I was unaware of this provision of Federal law:
- Under federal law, a person who willfully does not pay a child support obligation of more than $10,000 for a child living in another state may be fined $250,000 and imprisoned up to two years. In addition, it is a felony to cross state lines to evade child support obligations of more than $5,000.
I think this is good policy but I’m not sure if the Constitution permits this. I’ll have to do some reading on this.
