Are You A Deadbeat Parent?
Posted by familydynamics on December 30, 2007
If you are a deadbeat parent, in the State of Wisconsin, you could be soon outed.
Deadbeat parents could face public shaming on the Internet under legislation a Fox Valley lawmaker plans to introduce in January.
State Rep. Steve Wieckert, R-Appleton, said the state needs to post online the names of people behind on child support payments, just as it does with delinquent taxpayers.
More than 100,000 people who owe at least $500 in child support could face listing under the plan, which aims to get people to pay up.
Do you think this is a good idea? After all, our children should be our first priority.
