Even NFL Players Have Trouble Paying Child Support

Former NFL football player, Terrell Owens, reached an agreement on July 19, 2012 to resolve his back child support. Prior to the agreement, he was facing a threat of contempt. He is paying some $5,000 a month in child support. In Massachusetts, the standard of contempt is defiance of a clear and unequivocal order and child support may not be modified retroactively. A debtor must pay their back arrearages. This is done by adding 25% onto whatever the child support guidelines say. Child support issues are a common problem in today’s recessionary economy for folks. Hope this blog helps shed some light on this issue.
