Florida residents may be interested in an article describing one way that law enforcement has been gathering evidence of "deadbeat" parents. This evidence can often be used to bring charges against parents who do not honor their child support obligations.
When a parent is ordered to pay child support, they have a legal obligation to do so. Failure to pay does not rise to the level of a criminal offense if the person's financial situation genuinely leaves them unable to make the payments. However, if a parent is able to make payments and does not pay for at least four months, criminal action could be taken against them. Now, government authorities tasked with enforcing these rules are using social media as a weapon against these delinquent parents.
