Child support enforcement affected by Ohio Supreme Court ruling

For divorced parents in Batavia who have custody of their children, the child support they may be receiving from their ex-spouses may be the only way that they are able to meet their families’ most basic needs. If the parents obligated to provide financial support in these situations stop making payments, the welfare of their exes as well as their children may be seriously hindered. In such cases, the threat of criminal prosecution has been a tool that state agencies have been able to rely on as a method of enforcement. That, however, may be changing in the near future.
