Numerous collection efforts are available in the state of Florida when a noncustodial parent falls behind on payments. Most states have similar means of enforcement. One state, however, uses a passive method of enforcement that one man says is an invasion of his privacy.
Like many parents here in Florida, the out-of-state man pays his monthly support obligation without hesitation. He receives monthly postcards from the state reminding him of his duty to pay child support. Apparently, even parents who are up-to-date and diligent with their payments receive the notices.
