South Dakota has been known to be one of the best in the nation for collecting child support, but in the past two years, the amount of unpaid child support has jumped nearly $20 million.
According to data from the state’s Department of Social Services, unpaid child support totaled to $138,125,329 at the end of the 2011 fiscal year.
From the fiscal year 2007 to the fiscal year 2011, the increase in child support cases have risen to 41,581 from 37, 249. Officials are concerned to see that this has been a national trend in the past few years. According to the most recent data, unpaid child support rose to $110 billion for the fiscal 2010.
