Back when I worked in HR, we received a garnishment order for one of our employees' child support. The guy hadn't been paying it for about six months, and the state was demanding catch-up payments in addition to the regular weekly amount. Since he had four kids, it was a pretty hefty sum. Thing is, the reason he hadn't been paying the support was that his ex-wife had died those six months ago, and he was raising the children. The government is just not very good at these sorts of things.
My former brother-in-law still has to pay his ex-wife child support, even though she no longer has custody of the children.
