I found this in the local newspaper.

"D.F. Mills, 30, Diamond St., Tallahassee, Fla., was booked Aug. 4 with criminal neglect of family after being found $29,000 in arrears in his $350 monthly child support payment."

This guy hasn't paid a dime of support in nearly 7 years. Why would anyone wait this long to pursue this deadbeat? If they have pursued him for this, why in the world would the state wait 7 years to arrest him. BTW, he wasn't even in FL when he was arrested.

Different states have different laws. Often, it takes a significant arrearage to warrant criminal action.

Oh Please, you have to ask why? I have been 16 years trying to collect support. It wasn't until the ex was over $100,000.00+ before they activly went after him. It still took three years after he was located. He has since paid $1,400.00 Yes fourteen hundered dollars out of the One hundred, sixteen thousand and some change that he is behind. He went to court today for sentencing and it was continued until mid Oct.

Mine owes 86,000 and we were in court for 6 months. Continued, continued, continued. I think they have to give the defendant every chance to prove they are innocent. If he showed up without a lawyer, they have to go through a whole process, saying they don't have a lawyer, at least mine did. They have to have a chance to get a public defender, another court process. Mine didn't have a lawyer or public defender, a whole other process, where the judge tries to tell him to get one or the judge appoints one. He wanted to represent himself (IDIOT). Then they have another process in front of the judge, where he represented himself and the judge informed him of his rights and that he refused counsel(IDIOT). Then we finally got to a real court date about CS, then it was slam time. Sentence to 4 years dept of corrections, SES 5 years probation, pay 100.00 a week, then he got busted for another DWI, got sent up for 4 years for DWI, 3rd offense, now CS judge(crimminal non support) issued another warrant for his arrest. So once he gets done for the DWI, I guess he stay for the CS, I really don't know?

Gee ... I've paid nearly $80K in child support over the past 5 years! It was recently lowered below $1K a month. More manageable I suppose.

Just think of all the vacations (Bali, Hawaii, Europe) or a house instead of apartment (LOL) and toys I could have had I been a "dead beat" loser of a dad. I could have been living up the single life ... living large perhaps.

But, how could a any father do something like that his children or the mother of his children? Set aside all the problems associated with a divorce, hurt feelings, etc, etc. Your children will always be your children!

Guess we're all a little different, huh.

WOMEN are deadbeats as well, not just men. I know you probably didn't think like that, just trying to change the mindset.

I think he was just reflecting on the situation as posted....it was specifically about a father not payng.

You are like the people who go around forcing everyone to be politically correct in all circumstances. Sometimes, we revert to a simpler way of phrasing something that has no ulterior motive.

Do you say the Apostle's Creed at Mass and edit the phrase "For us MEN and for our salvation He came down from heaven." so that it reads "For us and for our salvation He came down from heaven."? Many people in my church do, even the priests.
