According to the Census Bureau, roughly two-thirds (69.3 percent) of custodial parents who were owed child support received partial payments from noncustodial parents, while only 43.5 percent said they received the entire amount that was due to them. Parents not paying child custody isn't always a case of wealthy parents but also that of parents who can't afford it. In some cases, they can afford it and yet decide against it. This was the case in one particular case shared on Reddit recently.

The person was also subjected to non-payment of child support by their wealthy father but they refused to succumb to the situation and decided in favor of legal action. They shared their situation on Reddit and asked if they were wrong for "suing my biological father for unpaid child support?” They further wrote, "He refused to pay it at all and somehow got away with it." They also added that their mother had died and they are her only child because they had no relationship with the father. They sought justice. Therefore, they sued the father on behalf of their mother's estate.
