Flashy Facebook pictures posted by some fathers in Minnesota and around the country are getting them in trouble for nonpayment of child support. According to one single mother in Wisconsin, her 5-year-old daughter's father regularly posts photos of himself holding stacks of cash in his custom car. Meanwhile, the mother has received only one of the monthly $100 payments he is supposed to make for the care of their child.
Minnesota parents paying child support are likely aware that judicial directives can change the amount they owe. A couple in Pennsylvania is experiencing just such a scenario after a judge was ordered to recalculate child support payments after their divorce. It appears that the father in the case took a lower-paying job, but the judge did not consider the man's intent behind changing employment when evaluating child support requirements.
