Father ordered to pay over a million in back child support

Lottery winnings more than cover back child support payments

Family law issues are taken very seriously in Texas and most other states around the country. And in cases where kids are involved, the best interest of the children takes precedence in most legal proceedings.

Every now and then, news breaks of someone being tried in court over an especially high back-child-support bill, and often times that person may be less than excited to pay up. Though, one recent case stands as an encouraging reminder that sometimes people just need the opportunity to do right by their family and the law.
