The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department is reaching out to parents who owe child support with an amnesty-week. Montgomery county sheriff, Eileen Behr says, from June 10th until June 14th, people who owe child support can make arraignments to start paying to avoid arrest.
“There are about 300 active warrants out there for people who are failing to pay child support. When you fail to pay, Sooner or later it becomes a criminal warrant for failure to follow the court order for payment.”
Behr adds, about 5-million dollars is owed to families for child support. The County’s Department of Domestic Relations has a list of offenders who repeatedly have ignored notices. According to records, one parent owes
55-grand, while another owes 44-thousand.
