If asked to come up with an image of a deadbeat dad, most in Wichita may likely envision a man with no job, few prospects and little money. This likely comes from the assumption that those who can afford to make child support payments would, if (for nothing else) than to the avoid the potential legal trouble that can come from missing it. Yet the concept of the "deadbeat dad" may be more of a reflection of an attitude than it is one's financial situation.
It is assumed that most parents in Wichita have no problem supporting their kids. Yet like many of those that we here at Stange Law Firm have worked with in the past, you might find yourself dealing with an ex-spouse or former partner that cannot (or does not want to) do it. He or she might get the idea that as long as he or she is not drawing in income, the courts cannot impose a child support obligation on him or her. He or she will likely be unpleasantly surprised to find out that is not the case.
