More divorced Wisconsinites are using unemployment benefits to pay their child support
Divorced Wisconsinites are not exempt from the recession and more of them are using unemployment benefits to pay their child support.
State officials said almost $18 million in child support came through jobless pay in the first three months of this year. That's more than twice the amount from a year ago.
And it's almost as much as the $22 million collected for all of 2008.
