Major Media Opportunity on National TV Show---Is This You?
Recently the Boston Globe ran a front page story on a Fathers & Families' member who was jailed for child support because his income in the Real Estate industry dropped dramatically and he was unable to pay his child support. The story also covers our highly-publicized lawsuit against the new, higher Massachusetts child support guidelines. Fathers & Families was contacted by a major national TV show which is doing a story on the problems with the child support system and is looking for child support obligors to be on the show. The network is specifically interested in individuals with the following scenarios: 1) Your income has declined significantly over the past year but you have been unable to get courts to modify your child support obligations. (You could be in any state) 2) Your child support has been raised under the new Massachusetts guidelines. (Massachusetts only) This information will not be shared with anyone except the TV producer. Please do not respond unless you are willing to be publicly identified on national television. Glenn Sacks, MA Executive Director Ned Holstein, M.D., M.S. Founder, Chairman of the Board
