Police investigate fewer cases of parents not paying share for raising children


The number of cases where parents of split families are failing to make payments for raising children has fallen for the fourth year running. In 2016, police investigated just over 10,600 cases where payments were not being made. That is around 1,500 fewer than the previous year. Higher employment and the possibility of withdrawing driving licenses from non-paying parents are among the reasons given for the fall. There are around 180,000 single parent families in the Czech Republic.
