New York Child Support Collects $1.7 Billion in 2008

By Sheryl Rentz on April 3, 2009

The state of New York has so far collected $1.7 billion in child support for the year 2008, according to this news report. That number is an increase of $104 million over the previous year. According to the New York Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance, this was the biggest annual increase in child support collections since 2001. Officials say this increase was due to the agency’s efforts to collect as well as the establishment of paternity of 90,937 New York children – which was up 3 percent from 2007. The department can take a number of steps from garnishing wages to intercepting tax returns when non-custodial parents get behind on support payments.

Pennsylvania has very strict laws that make punishment for parents who do not pay child support very severe. Any amounts owed in back payments of child support in Pennsylvania are known as arrearages. A parent who does not pay up can face punishment that includes jail time, driving license and/or passport suspension, bank account seizure and reporting of failure to pay to credit agencies. If you are a parent who is looking to collect child support, all it takes is contacting an experienced Pennsylvania child support attorney. The best family law attorneys will not charge for an initial consultation.

If a parent misses payments but wants to make up for it, he or she has options as well.
