Permanent alimony 'circle of hell' spurs reform in several states

The story of a man who has been jailed at least eight times in the past two years over non-payment of alimony appears to have struck nerves nationwide. The man was making $1 million a year as an investment portfolio manager at the time of his divorce, and his total child support and lifetime alimony payment was set at nearly $100,000 a year. Shortly after the divorce, however, the economy tanked and he lost his job. After forking over all of his savings, he couldn’t keep up. Jail has became routine for him.

Blue Cross could owe $5 million for spurning child support order

After three years of litigation, repeated court orders and a ruling by a state appellate court, the insurance company Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois is apparently still ready to fight its legal obligation to withhold child support from payments it makes to a therapist who owes between $20,000 and $30,000. In the meantime, his ex-wife has lost a home to foreclosure and is on the verge of losing another. Two of their three children have reached adulthood.

Often enough, a sudden job loss or economic downturn can make it hard for people to pay their child support. When the reason someone is failing to pay child support is a substantial change in circumstances, he or she should seek a child support modification as soon as possible so the problem doesn’t continue to build.
