Randy Jackson owes delinquent child support for adult children

Family law issues can be complicated, and this is true even for celebrities. According to a recent report, the youngest brother in the world-famous Jackson family, Randy Jackson, now owes $500,000 in delinquent child support payments to the mother of two of his children, Alejandra Oaziaza. Their children are now 22 and 20 years old.

Most of our Missouri readers probably know that child support is money that non-custodial parents are ordered to pay on a regular basis to help pay for the costs of raising their children. Every state in the country, including Missouri, has established guidelines for child support that take into account the child's needs, the income of each parent, and child care and health insurance costs to determine the amount. Thus, the amount ordered in each case will likely be different based on the parents' individual circumstances.

In Missouri, the Child Support Calculation Worksheet asks several questions that assist in determining the amount of child support that should be ordered in an individual case. This worksheet assists with questions such as what is considered gross income, credits for other children, sports participation or college costs.

When a parent is delinquent on child support payments in Missouri, the orders are enforced through wage assignments and garnishments, liens on real estate and personal property and possible contempt charges.

Randy Jackson recently joined several of his siblings in seeking to remove the executors for the estate of their brother, Michael Jackson, fueling rumors that Randy is seeking money to pay for the child support he reportedly owes. Randy said these actions were not about the money when he appeared on MSNBC's PoliticsNation recently. His brother, Jermaine Jackson, also owes delinquent child support to the same woman, who is Jermaine's ex-wife.
