The Cameron County Sheriff’s Department arrested 34 parents this week that violated child support court orders, according to a Texas Attorney General Office press release.

The department worked with the AG’s Child Support Division and the sweep focused on people with arrest warrants for failing to pay child support.

On Tuesday morning two teams of deputies were sent to arrest noncompliant parents before they had a chance to leave their homes for the day, according to the release.

The parents face up to six months in jail. The money from their bonds are paid to custodial parents and children who are owed back payments.

Parents who have fallen behind on payments – who are not subject to warrants – can contact the Attorney General’s Child Support Division at (800) 252-8014 to make payment arrangements.
