Some parents try to reduce child support by reporting false income, by working for cash or by simply hiding their income altogether. I'd like to remind everyone that this is a crime, it's considered perjury to report false information about income. If it's proven, there are negative legal consequences. Parents who are required to pay child support by court order need to be very careful and they need to make sure that all of their information is up to date and accurate. It's possible to accidentally commit child support fraud as well.
