Texas Attorney General Greg Abbot said,

“Parents have a moral and legal obligation to make regular child support payments. By collecting child support, we are ensuring young Texans have the resources they need to grow healthy and strong. We are grateful to Ector County Sheriff Mark Donaldson for his unfailing commitment to Texas Children.”

This week’s sweep began on Monday. Delinquent parents arrested on civil warrants face up to half a year in jail. Cash bonds posted by them are paid to the parents and children who are owed back child support.

To avoid being embarrassed at home or work by being arrested, parents with child support warrants should call the Ector County Sheriff’s Office. If you have fallen behind on child support payments, but don’t have a warrant out for your arrest, you should call the Attorney General’s Child Support Division at (800) 252-8014 to make payment arrangements.

Across Texas, the Attorney General’s Office collected more than $3.4 billion in child support during the fiscal year that ended on August 31. The office that covers Ector County collected $44 million of that amount.
