Abstract :

State governments have found difficulty in enforcing child support requirements from parents who have found refuge in another state. States cannot rely on cooperation from the state where the parent has transferred, and Congress has been unable to enact laws that would solve the problem of collecting child support. Congress' inability has been remedied by the Child Support Recovery Act of 1992 that makes parents subject to criminal laws once they have allowed the amount of unpaid child support to accumulate.
