A recent case from another, nearby state may be of interest to readers in Massachusetts. The issue involves the payment of child support by a father of a young child. In that case, the father argued that he was not the non-custodial parent of the child, thus he should not have to pay child support to the child's mother.
Massachusetts agencies tasked with finding those that have failed to pay their child support use many tools. These include searches of employment records and other official documents. Recently, Facebook profiles have been used to gain information about noncustodial parents who owe child support.
