Dead Beat Crack Down

MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Nearly half of all children in Milwaukee County rely – in one way or another – on child support. When parents don’t pay up, the consequences may be more far-reaching than you think. Now, there is a law coming soon in Milwaukee County that’s cracking down on deadbeat parents.

“If you owe more than $5,000 in child support, you have to spend 3 years in prison,” Maureen Atwell said.

Maureen also stated, “We’re seeing too many cases each year where irresponsible fathers are absent and not paying child support with no excuse.”

More information will be released soon!
