In general, divorce can be complex. When the separation involves a family with minor children, even more is involved than just property division. In most cases, one parent resides with the child while the other parent is expected to pay child support. Child support is a financial contribution to the everyday and extracurricular costs of raising a child. In most states, the noncustodial parent will be expected to pay support until the child is no longer considered a minor. Certain circumstances, however, may warrant a longer period of support, such as if a child has a serious physical or cognitive impairment.
An arrest warrant was issued for rapper Chief Keef after the 18-year-old failed to appear at a hearing regarding back child support that he allegedly owed to the mother of his 17-month-old child. A petition had been filed by the state in June of 2014 alleging that the man owed more than $10,000 in back child support.
