Insanity: The most common sources of impossibly high support orders are default judgments where the defendant was never even served with notice of the case; "imputed income" where the judge makes an assumption as to what the parent "should" be earning; failure to adjust support orders when earnings are reduced; and imprisonment. In many states the rigid rule is that imprisonment is "voluntary" and, therefore, not a basis to reduce child support. The result is that a prisoner is released, found to be in arrears on child support that accrued while in prison, and sent back to prison as a "deadbeat."
Note that under Obamacare after 2014 child support for dependent children will continue until the man's son or daughter (presuming he was smart enough to get a DNA test) will continue until age 26. That virtually guarantees Mom will keep her "babies" living with her until the youngest turns 26.
