Abstract

The lack of compliance with child support payments by the non-custodial parent is a serious problem in Puerto Rico whose consequences and causes extend beyond economical and legal analysis. This article examines this social phenomenon and attempt to describe the social conditions that surrounds it. It also assesses the responses that the Puerto Rican government and other legal communities have given to the issue. After careful examination of the problem and the attempts to resolve it, the article argues that the solution to the problem lies in abandoning the judicial approach which focuses on the idea of identifying the rights of minors to share the wealth and income of their non-custodial parent and adopting a social policy approach that aims to reduce child poverty, promote parental responsibility and eradicate gender inequalities.
