Should casinos help gather child support?

Filed under: Finance — Tags: , — admin @ 1:23 pm

As some of you may know, there are new laws in the works that would enlist casino’s to help collect child support. A lot of people seem to be against this, but at the same time, there is one very good reason why this would be a good idea. It is actually a fact that a lot of people gamble away their money and as a result, they cannot make their child support payments. Well, this law would help to collect child support from people like this if they win.

Usually, if someone wins a great deal of money at the casino, they will come back. But if they come back, they are likely to not only lose what they won before, but a lot more as well!  This is how this law would help to collect child support. The first time the person left the casino, as a winner, their owed child support would come out of their winnings. This way, if they came back, they would not be gambling away child support payments – just their own money.

There is a lot of debate over this, but it does seem like any way that they can find to collect child support would be good, because it is, after all, for the kids. Kids need the money for things like clothes and schooling, and the guardian of the child deserves this compensation. So, whether this law gets passed or not, it is definitely one to keep an eye on.
