A state lawmaker proposed the creation of a registration of child support debtors in Baja California.
Assemblywoman Evelyn Sánchez introduced the bill that will take the Judiciary Branch to create such registration.
The legislator said the bill seeks to highlight minors’ right to receive food while making sure children access healthcare services, education and a sane and secure home.
Sanchez said the number of cases of child support debtors has been increasing recently.
In many cases, child support cannot be enforced as the paying parent has no job, works in the US, has moved or the authorities are unable to access their income information. The lawmaker expects that making public debtors names will lead to an increase of child support payment.
