An Orange County man has been charged with defrauding an elderly couple out of $5 million, which he used in part to pay child support payments.

The man told the elderly couple that they were investing in a business that recovered gold from old mines in California’s Imperial Valley, Nevada, and Brazil.  He used the money he bilked from the couple to pay child support, buy an oxygen chamber, and purchase half a million dollars in gold coins.  He is being charged with fraud, money laundering, and other legal violations.

A San Diego man who murdered his 10-month-old child and the baby’s mother has been sentenced to multiple consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole.  The man murdered the woman because she was pressuring him to admit paternity of the child.

The double-homicide occurred in 2006, and was described by the judge as being “at the top of the list of cruel, uncaring, brutal (crimes) … with the gravest amount of malice that [she has] seen.”

According to information gathered by the US Census Bureau and the Department of Health and Human Services, only about half of parents owed child support payments in 2007 saw the full amount of money they were owed.

The report found that 46.8% of parents received the full amount of child support, while 29.5% got only part of the total payment.  A shocking 23.7% received no payments at all.  That means nearly a quarter of all of the custodial parents owed child support payments had to do without them.

Overall, only 62.7% of the total $34.1 billion was collected.  This is especially worrisome, since the poverty rate for custodial parents is 24.6%, nearly twice the overall American poverty rate.

Attorney Michael FischerAccording to a new survey of family lawyers found that 39% of lawyers noted an increase in the number of people requesting modifications to their child-support payments, with 42% saying there was an increase in the number of people seeking modifications to alimony payments.  These numbers are due to the faltering economy; the unemployment rate among men is significantly higher than the unemployment rate for women, and men are finding it harder to meet their payments.

The already acrimonious divorce trial for Nevada Governor Jim Gibbons and his wife Dawn has been set for December.  The allegations are already flying: the governor is accusing his wife of trying to destroy his political career, while his wife is shooting back with allegations that he has had affairs with two married Reno women and has been conspiring to keep her from getting a job.  Naturally, both parties are denying the allegations of their spouse.  According to Ms. Gibbons’ attorney, there is no chance for a settlement, and that a trial is imminent.

A second trial for the baggage handler accused of murdering his four-year-old daughter to avoid paying child support has ended in a mistrial.  According to the prosecuting attorney, the man threw his child off a cliff in order to avoid paying the $1,000 a month he was expected to pay in child support.  The jury was split even between second degree murder and involuntary manslaughter.  According to one juror, the jury could not agree on whether the man actually threw the girl from the cliff, or was just a negligent father letting the girl play in a dangerous area.
