Texas man fights child support mishap

The father thought he was being responsible by paying all his child support obligations. Although he was no longer with the mother of his children, he upheld his end of the bargain and paid child support to her throughout the childhood of his kids. When they finally of age, a judge found that he had paid his responsibilities in full and, in fact, was entitled to a refund of a small overpayment. Unfortunately, just 30 days later, the state of Texas took his tax refund check, claiming that he owed over $6,000.

States may see some support from the federal government for an important program that supports the well-being of children. Currently, each state is responsible to monitor and enforce child support payments from individuals in their own location. A proposed federal program would create an IT service that would take on these duties for all 50 states, making states like Texas not responsible to maintain its own program.
