'Most wanted' list targets deadbeat parents

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Guam's leaders are beefing up child support enforcement. Legislation has been introduced to allow the Attorney General's Office to publicly disclose a "Deadbeat Parents Most Wanted List". Bill 124 was co-sponsored by Speaker Judi Won Pat and Senators Tina Muna Barnes and Adolpho Palacios.

"For example," said Palacios, "that the absent parent would first be notified to make payments and to live up to their obligations or whatever. And then of course, I guess after three attempts, it will be publicized. Right now, the Child Support Division does that, but I don't know whether that's annual or semiannual. But this bill, I think, it will be three months, meaning that if you miss three times, consecutively, then you will be notified official. If you still fail to respond, then it will publicize."

KUAM's new partnership with the AG's Office, the Absent Parent Bulletin, premieres tomorrow night on KUAM News Primetime at 6pm and on KUAM.com.
