When Kathleen Threatt opened the letter handed to her by a sheriff's deputy, she says she started laughing. South Carolina's Sumter County Family Court had sent her notice that she owed 63 cents in child support. Even funnier to her, the bill was for payments she allegedly should have made 12 years earlier. Her children are now adults and parents of their own. She wasn't laughing after she contacted the court. They wanted the money. Threatt says it's waste of resources. And one court official agrees. "It's a waste, but that's part of what we do, unfortunately," said Sumter County Clerk of Court Jamie Campbell.
