    Reading the Federal law
    United States Code Title 18, Section 228

    (a) Offense. - Any person who -

    (1) willfully fails to pay a support obligation with respect to a child who resides in another State, if such obligation has remained unpaid for a period longer than 1 year, or is greater than $5,000;

    (2) travels in interstate or foreign commerce with the intent to evade a support obligation, if such obligation has remained unpaid for a period longer than 1 year, or is greater than $5,000; or

    (3) willfully fails to pay a support obligation with respect to a child who resides in another State, if such obligation has remained unpaid for a period longer than 2 years, or is greater than $10,000;


    I cannot understand the first article... Is it OK to fail to pay if you live in the same state as the child:confused: :confused: :D :D

    Good guidelines but except "another state" part.

    An interesting observation, GV70, which illustrates that federal law must transcend individual state boundaries or risk constitutional challenge.

    George is right. The basis of this in not to interrupt a states law but to proclaim federal law as it leads to protection of the child. In many states federal law is used as a guideline for CS. In many situations a crime becomes federal if you cross state lines.
