15 parents arrested, Lubbock Co child support roundup

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Fifteen Lubbock County parents were locked up in jail this week, and accused of not paying child support.  Sheriff's Deputies did a two-day roundup starting Wednesday.  Deadbeat parents can face up to six months in jail. 

Parents who have outstanding warrants can call the Warrant Division of the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office at (806) 775-1493.  Parents who have fallen behind on their child support payments can call the Attorney General's Child Support Division at (800) 252-8014 to make payment arrangements.

Statewide, the Attorney General collected more than $2.9 billion in child support last fiscal year.  The A.G.'s Lubbock County child support offices collected $61 million during that same time period.
