Maryland child support payments owed even if out of state

An attorney general's office in another state recently collected more than $95,000 in back child support payments in one case. Maryland parents who receive child support payments are likely aware that payments can be collected even if the parent who owes the support moves to another state. The 41-year-old man who had moved to another state paid his back due support after an arrest warrant was issued for him for felony non-support.

When a parent stops making child support payments

As part of a Maryland divorce or custody order, a non-custodial parent may be ordered to pay child support for a child or children. Penalties and enforcement procedures are in place when parents fail to make court-ordered payments. However, these measures are most often aimed at parents who for some reason are not making payments even though they have the means. Those who legitimately cannot make payments should get an existing support order modified to avoid delinquency.
