Attorney General Greg Abbott needs your help locating Child Support Evader Renee Hebert, one of the Most Wanted Child Support Evaders in Texas. Hebert, who was put on the Child Support Evader’s list in December 2004, owes $13,846 for the care of a son and daughter from Galveston.
In 1983, Hebert was ordered to pay $50 a month in child support. In November 2001, a Galveston county judge increased Hebert’s monthly support payment to $250, based on her earnings at that time. An arrest warrant was issued when Hebert, who received legal notice, failed to attend the court hearing to modify her child support obligation.
Hebert has not made a child support payment in over five years. This delinquent mother has turned her back on her son and daughter by refusing to provide financial assistance all children need to succeed in life. Due to missed payments and interest that accrues on unpaid child support, Hebert now owes more than $13,000 in unpaid child support.
Investigators from the Attorney General’s Office have searched the state for Hebert. Contact the Attorney General’s Office at 1-866-EVADERS (382-3377) to report information that may lead to the arrest of Renee Hebert.
The Child Support Evaders are selected because they have the ability to take responsibility for their children, but refuse to do so. Incarceration is the only option for parents who flagrantly ignore a court’s order to pay child support. The Attorney General’s Office helps parents who lack the ability to pay child support by referring them to job training and employment services.
