Readers in New Jersey may find it hard to believe that a man could have 15 paternity suits filed against him by nine different women. According to court records, however, that's exactly what has happened. The man, who resides in Nebraska, owes almost $80,000 in back child support for 14 children. The amounts date back to November 1984.
Parents in New Jersey who have gone through a divorce know that matters of child support and child custody can be decided upon outside of court. But, of course, that isn't always the case. Sometimes extra effort is necessary to resolve these issues, and when a non-custodial parent doesn't make court-ordered payments or breaches a custody agreement, that parent could be penalized.
