Milwaukee County Eliminates Child Support Arrears

Milwaukee County has promised to eliminate all child support arrears in exchange for 8 hours of community service. Many delinquent parents rejoice as they get a “do over”. If you decide to take this option, however, you cannot miss a single payment or you will be incarcerated immediately and have to serve the amount of days your arrears were. For example, if the county waives $10,000 in arrears and you miss a payment, then you immediately serve 10,000 days in the state penitentiary. The child support office has been flooded with applications as deadbeat parents try to restore their good name
