In a recent sentencing hearing for missed child support payments, Wisconsin father of 9 Corey Curtis (fathered among 6 women) was ordered "as a condition of probation, to not procreate unless he can show he can financially support the child." The man owed nearly $100,000 in missed support obligations.
Have you not received child support or spousal maintenance payments due to you under a court order? A judgment can be docketed without initiating a lawsuit. The debtor parent/spouse is given an opportunity to contest the claimed obligations through a hearing, but if they cannot demonstrate that the obligations were paid (or were not due in the first place), then the judgment stands. Once a judgment is obtained, you can garnish either their bank account or paycheck to get back the money owed to you.
