A friend of ours was able to discharge a $89,596 child support debt. This person was in prison for years and the child support bill kept rising. In prison you can only earn $0.12 per hour, so it is literally impossible to pay this off.
Needless to say, our friend is really happy to have this behind him!!!
Many times, the State just sends people an arbitrary amount of arrears owed, even if the parent has been paying to and/or investing in the upbringing, education, sustenance, and need of their children.
