“He has a job and he owes child support.”

Is that it? How much does he make? What are his monthly payments. An awful lot of jobs out there will not even provide food and housing for one person.

Sounds like you know nothing...

The immigrant POS deadbeat dad is a party store owner who owes $29,000 in back child support? I say give the money to the ex wife, let her keep her share then force him to try and get the rest of it back.........

As a side note, it wouldn't suprise me in the least if one of his customers bought the ticket then brought it back to him to see if it was a winner and as occasionally happens, he says no, pretends to throw it away and the ticket buyer walks away thinking they were a loser.......and he cashes in.

While I'm sure that has happened in this case he didn't have lotto in his store and bought the ticket at another store.

Mandated child support is least among the culprits of the dissolution of the family unit, whether in the inner-city, suburbia, or rural America.

So the creep owes child support. It will get paid. The big question in my mind is whether he’ll share his winnings with that child or children....does he have a heart?

I had an employed Christian ex who NEVER paid his child support, and in fact, stole money from his children’s accounts — money they had made themselves, as child models. Of course the children felt awful about this.

At least the lottery winner has a chance to make restitution both financially and emotionally to all of his children. Let’s hope that he does.

Please...

I worked with this group for twenty years. I have seen first hand what this mandate has done.

Would you elaborate? I see lots of villains. Women being encouraged (paid) to have children out of wedlock, having more children than they can possibly care for to get the money, children having children. Incentive for fathers not to be there. On and on and on. How do you separate out mandated child support for first place honors?
