In most cases, divorces involving children include settlement agreements over child support payments. Typically, these payments will last until the child (or children) turns 18, at which point the payments will stop. This is not necessarily the case for every individual situation, so it’s important to speak with your lawyer about potential changes or other possibilities. One other thing to consider: if your spouse unexpectedly stops paying child support and you do not know why, you should immediately speak to an experienced child support attorney.

A man from Knoxville has recently gone to court in order to ask for help because he has been unable to make child support payments for his 30 children.
The man works for minimum wage in Tennessee and now has 30 children by 11 different women. He has asked the court to change his child support payments because he has trouble paying his bills.
The state of Tennessee only allows for half of a paycheck to be garnished for child support payments, which means that some of the mothers receive less then $1.50 a month. The man was last in court in 2009 when he had 21 children. He was struggling with child support then and told officials that he was not going to have anymore children.
