In the state of Oklahoma, District Attorney Jerry S. Moore announced that three individuals are facing arrest for failure to pay child support. The men who are facing arrest failed to appear at the Adair County District Court child support docket on June 2nd. After failing to appear, District Judge Mike Norman issued bench warrants for non-custodial parents.
Bench warrants were issued for Steven Meskus, Gary Smith and Gerald Wyche. Between the three men, over $25,000 is owed in delinquent child support payments.
At this time, the district is asking that anyone with information about these men or their hereabouts contact police immediately so arrests can be made.
Moore told news sources that in the month of June, non-custodial parents' cases that were worked through the Sallisaw Child Support Office paid $72,099.98 total. He said, "The mission of the Office of Child Support Services (OCSS) is to enhance the well-being of children by establishing, monitoring, and enforcing reliable sources of support for families entitled to child support."
If you are owed child support payments, now is the time to discuss your situation with a knowledgeable family law attorney.
