Massachusetts may take interest in Capone child support case

Massachusetts readers may recognize the name of a famous rapper who has recently been arrested for failing to pay his court-ordered child support payments. In fact, the star has allegedly failed to pay child support since 2004. He reportedly has only paid $144 in child support in the last eight years, leaving a balance owed in back support of more than $160,000 for his 12-year-old daughter.

Massachusetts child support: Failure to pay hurts everyone

Parents who have failed to pay court ordered child support for their kids in Massachusetts owe $1.6 billion. There are reportedly over 32,000 non-custodial parents that individually owe more than $10,000 in back child support in our state. There are mechanisms that agencies use to find these non-paying parents, but when a person leaves the state, the task can be more difficult, and the totals increase even higher.

Halle Berry's child custody case continues

Massachusetts readers may be interested to learn about the ongoing legal battles between actress Halle Berry and her ex Gabriel Aubry. The child custody case revolves around the actress's desire to move her child out of the country. Berry is engaged to Olivier Martinez, an actor, who resides in France. For safety and other reasons, the couple wishes to live primarily at his home.
