It's understandable that in many situations, parents who miss child support payments could face jail time. However, divorced spouses in Georgia may face time in jail for missing alimony payments. This is the case with a man who has been jailed multiple times and is now on a work release program. He must report to jail by a certain time each evening and leave during the day for work. In order for him to be released, he must pay $25,000 in back alimony.
Georgia parents who wait every month on child support or alimony payments may need to practice patience, according to a recent report. A couple may have the financial arrangements settled in court during divorce proceedings, but circumstances sometimes vary, making a change in those agreed upon child support or alimony payments inevitable. Learning to be flexible will help during those times of change.
The former general counsel of Glock, Inc., which has its US headquarters office in Georgia, had been incarcerated after being convicted of several crimes. The charges against him were reversed on appeal, and he was awaiting his release when he was informed that he was to remain in prison until back child support he owed his ex-wife was paid. The child support amount owed is in the thousands of dollars, He is also expected to pay for interest accrued on that amount in addition to the legal fees of his ex-wife.
