Rapper faces consequences for unpaid child support

As some Chicago parents know, failing to pay court-ordered child support payments can have serious consequences. Capone, one half of the rap duo Capone-N-Noreaga, learned this truth when he was recently arrested for failing to pay child support for his daughter. Allegedly, the rapper has failed to meet his financial obligations for the last eight years.

Capone reportedly owes more than $160,000 in support for his 12-year-old daughter. While the rapper has been released from jail on a $10,000 bond, the judge has restricted his travel. Capone is only allowed to go to travel within three states. Despite the allegations, the rapper claims that he had taken care of his daughter even though it does not appear that way on paper.

Many parents who have gone through a divorce continue to struggle with receiving the child support necessary for raising a child. These payments are intended to support the child's medical needs, everyday expenses and education, among other things. Failure to pay child support can result in the custodial parent struggling to provide their children with the same standard of living that they experienced prior to the divorce. In some cases, the lack of financial support makes it difficult for the parent with physical custody to simply provide their children with basic necessities.

Many parents need continued legal assistance to address child support disputes after the terms of the divorce have been finalized. It is important to address these issues and come to a reasonable conclusion that fits with the best interests of the child. In some cases, it will be necessary for the delinquent parent to experience penalties and harsh consequences for not fulfilling the financial obligations determined by the court.
