Unpaid child support lands Massachusetts man behind bars

Like many other states, Massachusetts is getting serious when it comes to collecting child support payments. In a recent case, a Quincy District Court judge ordered a 47-year-old man held on $20,000 cash bail.

According to officials, the man has had some issues with non-payment of child support in the past.

Massachusetts man arrested for child support nonpayment

Most people already know that raising a child is an expensive endeavor. In today's economy, it's difficult enough to support a child with both parents working -- but when a parent is left to support a child on his or her own, the stress can be overwhelming. For this reason, courts have enlisted child support orders. The goal of an order is to ensure that children receive the monetary support they deserve. Unfortunately, those payments aren't always made in a timely manner, which can lead to legal ramifications. A former Massachusetts man is learning about those ramifications after he was arrested in Las Vegas and was cited for failing to pay child support.
