The family court system has very clear guidelines and laws pertaining to child support. However, there may be times when parents decide to go along with an agreement outside of a court order. This is never recommended, as it can lead to misunderstandings or worse. Anyone in Pennsylvania who is hesitant to agree to a child support order through the family court system may want to know about a woman who pleaded guilty to fraudulently receiving child support when there was no child even involved.
The woman met the man on a dating website. A few months after meeting in person, the woman claimed to be pregnant. The woman told the man to pay her directly or she would file a claim and he would end up paying most of the money he made. The man agreed to pay her $1,000 a month.
