It is not altogether unusual for individuals to struggle with their divorce settlements. However, if parties do not make their alimony and/or child support payments as required, serious issues could come about for everyone involved. New York residents may be interested in one case that recently resulted in a former professional football player going to jail.
Reports stated that Robert Meachem and his ex-wife have two children, and they share custody of the kids. However, Meachem was ordered to pay child support and alimony to his ex-wife. The amount for both forms of support reportedly totaled $20,000 a month. However, the former footballer has fallen behind on those payments, and he owes approximately $400,000 in back support.
