In the United States, child support is the ongoing obligation for a periodic payment made directly or indirectly by an "obligor" or paying parent or payer to an "obligee" or receiving party or recipient for the financial care and support of children of a relationship or a possibly terminated marriage. The laws governing this kind of obligation vary dramatically state -by-state and tribe-by-tribe among Native Americans. Each individual state and federally recognized tribe is responsible for developing its own guidelines for determining child support. Typically the obligor is a non-custodial parent. Typically the obligee is a custodial parent, caregiver or guardian, or a government agency, and does not have to spend the money on the child.

When year-old Thomas Goodman of Warwick, Rhode Island, pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a newborn baby and two other children, he was prepared to serve some prison time. Far too often we hear about abusers and rapists receiving probation or suspended sentences despite admitting to heinous crimes against children. Unfortunately, this typically comes about when the prosecution is compelled to offer the accused a more lenient sentence in exchange for a guilty plea that might not otherwise come to fruition, allowing the perpetrator to evade justice entirely. After pleading guilty to repeatedly sexually abusing a 3-week-old baby and a pair of 6-year-old girls, Goodman fainted in the courtroom upon hearing the judge sentencing him to years in prison, the Providence Journal reports. At the request of his attorney, Goodman had expected to receive around 22 years in prison, which could easily result in an early release based on good behavior.
