Child support is something that affects many people across the United States as well as in Colorado. It can often come as a result of a divorce or the separation of unmarried parents. For people who receive child support, that extra money can mean the difference between being able to provide for their children and not being able to. When one spouse doesn’t pay the amount that was determined, as in the following story, it can be frustrating and the children may suffer because of it.
A comedy star who got his start in “The Kids in the Hall,” a Canadian comedy series that formed in the ’80s, has reported that he could be arrested for not paying child support if he returns to his native Canada.
David Foley claims he has been ordered to pay child support that amounts to 400 percent of his income. In a recent interview, Foley said he would happily pay half of his income, but he can’t afford current payments.
The comedian has two teenage children with his first wife, whom he divorced in 1997. Foley and his second wife had a daughter as well. They divorced in 2008.
In 2007, Foley tried to have his support payments modified, saying he could not find a steady job. The judge, however, denied his request.
After staring on “The Kids in the Hall,” Foley had roles on “News Radio,” the Pixar movie “A Bug’s Life” and a guest role on the television series “Desperate Housewives.” He has also received interest from CBS to star in a new television series.
