Nine Arrested For Failure to Pay Child Support in Lubbock County


Nine parents have been arrested after reportedly failing to pay child support.

The parents are believed to have violated court orders requiring them to pay child support.

The Lubbock County Sheriff’s Department dispatched teams of deputies to locate and arrest parents whose failure to pay violates the law.

Delinquent parents arrested on civil warrants face up to six months in jail, and cash bonds posted by the parents seeking release from jail get paid to the custodial parents and children that are owed back child support.

Parents with outstanding warrants can avoid being arrested at home or work by contacting the warrant division of the Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office at 775-1493.

Parents who are behind on child support, but do not have a warrant out for their arrest should contact the Attorney General’s Child Support Division at 800-252-8014.

“Parents have a moral and legal obligation to make regular child support payments,” said Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott. “By collecting child support, we are ensuring young Texans have the resources they need to grow healthy and strong. We are grateful to Sheriff Rowe for his unfailing commitment to Texas children.”

Child support collected by the Texas Attorney General’s office exceeded $3 billion for the 2010-2011 fiscal year. $66 million was collected in Lubbock County.
