Child Support Evader Timothy Andrus

Child Support Evader Timothy Andrus By Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott Last Address Bennett, CO Occupation Commercial Construction/Oil Field Industry Born 10/1/50 Height 6’ 0” Weight 200 lbs. Color of Eyes Hazel Color of Hair Brown Race Caucasian Alias Tim Andrus Attorney General Greg Abbott needs your help locating Child Support Evader Timothy Andrus, one of the Most Wanted Child Support Evaders in Texas. Andrus, who was put on the Child Support Evader’s list in December 2005, owes $142,391 for the care of a son and daughter in Midlothian. In 1988, Andrus was ordered to pay $135 a week in child support. Andrus, who had the ability to make his payments, did not follow the court’s order to support his children financially. His noncompliance led to a 1998 conviction for criminal nonsupport, for which he received a probated sentence. Andrus continued to ignore the court’s order to pay child support, so a second arrest warrant was issued following a 2004 indictment for criminal non-support. Andrus is wanted by law enforcement officials who seek to arrest him on the outstanding charge. By refusing to provide the financial resources his son and daughter need, Andrus has turned his back on his children and violated the law. A combination of missed payments and interest that accrues on unpaid child support adds up to more than $142,000 in unpaid child support that Andrus owes his kids. Andrus’ last known address was Bennett, Co. He also may have lived in California. Andrus is believed to travel out of the country, possibly to Australia. He may be working for cash or self-employed to avoid garnishment of wages to pay child support. Contact the Attorney General’s Office at (866) EVADERS (382-3377) to report information that may lead to the arrest of Timothy Andrus. The Child Support Evaders are selected because they have the ability to take responsibility for their chil-dren, 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.
