This iReport is part of an assignment:
The fiscal cliff: Messages to Washington
owed $375,000 in child support
Close the loopholes
make child support warrants enforceable across state lines
prosecute fully those that owe more than $5,000
Take away federal funds from States like Washington
Have the State the non-custodial parent lives in pay the arrears then they can go after the parent for re-payment.
States like Washington should face stiff fines for not enforcing child support orders especially interstate orders since these parents move from state to state.
Walter Medina was on federal probation when he was allowed to move to Washington State and he was not violated for not supporting his children even though that was a condition of his probation. My children were failed at every avenue. Again, I am asking that States like Washington be penalized.
I cannot get food stamps because I work. My son has a medical condition that means I stay home to take care of him. If I don't work I don't get paid. I am owed over $5,000 in child support. The father lives in another state. Why is he not being prosecuted? He pays "something every so often." He has to stop paying completely before they will go after him. That makes no sense.
