Should a deadbeat dad's nonpayments go on his credit report?

Question:

How do I get child support arrears onto the deadbeat dad's credit report?

Answer:

Such a nice, short question -- for what must have a nasty, long history. Contact your local district attorney's child support unit. By law, the folks there must report arrears over a certain amount to the three major credit bureaus: Equifax, TransUnion, and Experian.
