News - Child Support and Casino Winnings

I reported on this Indiana legislation here. A bit of follow up here from The Anderson Herald Bulletin Indiana House backs taking deadbeat parents' winnings

The bill approved unanimously Thursday would withhold gambling winnings from parents who are behind on their child support payments. Supporters say it makes sense in a state where just 58 percent of child support payments are collected.


The withholdings would generally kick in on slot machine winnings of $1,200 or more.

The bill must return to the Senate for consideration of changes the House made.
