The state is cracking the whip on parents who try to skip out on paying child support.  Officials say they collected more than one-point-four-billion-dollars in child support payments during fiscal year 2014, which ended on July 31st.  That's a new record. 

 

State officials say most parents in Illinois step up to provide the support their kids need, but they say the state is proud to step in when parents are avoiding their obligation.
