Three people arrested in New Jersey on child support warrants

After married couples decide to end their marriages, many will have to address various issues regarding any children involved in the divorce. Usually the parent without custody of the children will be required to make child support payments to the parent with custody. Additionally, failure to make these payments can result in arrest warrants. Three New Jersey residents recently found this out the hard way after being arrested for allegedly failing to make payments to support their children.

One woman was arrested at approximately 9:30 a.m. in early April. The local authorities arrested the woman as a result of $7,917 which she owed in child support payments. Authorities maintain that the mother failed to appear at a mid-March hearing scheduled in court.

The second person arrested was a 25-year-old woman who owed $5,554 in unpaid child support. The arrest occurred at approximately 8 a.m., also in early April. Authorities had issued a warrant for her arrest in early February and there was no word on why it took so long to affect the arrest. The woman is being held on $1,553 bail.

The third person arrested was a 34-year-old man. Authorities apprehended the man at approximately 11:30 a.m. in mid-April. The man was wanted for owing $31,489 in child support payments. The local authorities had issued a warrant for the man's arrest in early November of 2012 after he did not show up to a scheduled court hearing.

These arrests in New Jersey serve as examples of what could happen if a parent does not stay current on child support payments. It is important for a parent who begins to fall behind on payments to consider petitioning for a modification of child support. This may result in the court lowering the monthly payment schedule to a more manageable level.
