Deadbeat parents now put on "Wanted" poster
Louisiana (NBC33) — The Department of Children and Family Services have put out a "Most Wanted" poster, which includes the Top 18 wanted for non-payment of child support.
Combined - the group owes nearly a million dollars.
DCFS says if the money isn't paid, in the long run, it impacts everyone in Louisiana.
“When money is not paid, what happens is these families actually then have to rely on other services,” said Trey Williams with DCFS. “They might have to apply for food stamps or welfare, so really, for all taxpayers, it's a burden.”
Of the Top 18, two live in Baton Rouge and one lives in Denham Springs.
Statewide, DCFS says there's over a billion dollars in back-owed child support.
