People in Massachusetts who learn they will soon become a parent are filled with dreams of their newborn baby and how wonderful life will be. While there is no joy like that of seeing a child for the first time, parents soon realize the financial and physical toll of caring for a small child. These difficulties are sometimes complicated when parents are no longer together. Additionally, one parent's failure to provide court-ordered child support could negatively impact his or her child; therefore, these parents could face a variety of penalties.
One father who authorities claim has a history of failure to pay child support has recently been arrested. Reports indicate that the man has now been arrested 12 times for his failure to make court-ordered payments. He has reportedly owed more than $100,000 for the past five years.
