    Comments:  | Leave A Comment

    According to a CBS News report dated, June 19, 2011, unemployment is at an 
    all-time high among African Americans (16.2 % for  our community in general and 
    17.5 % for African American men). In major cities like New York 34% of Black 
    males  between the ages of 19 and 24 are not working.
    
    Juggling finances can be difficult for any man who is unemployed, but for 
    unemployed men who have been ordered to pay child support things can get really 
    difficult.
    
    Many judges refuse to lower child support orders even when  a guy has lost his 
    job due to no fault of his own.
    
    If a father fails to pay his child support he faces a host of stiff criminal and 
    civil penalties including:
    
    * The suspension of his driver's license
    * The the freezing of his bank accounts and,
    * Jail time
    
    In addition, many states attach fees, penalties and interest to unpaid child 
    support.
