The price of a Passport

Tuesday, August 14, 2007
The price of a new passport: $40,000 for some, a lot more for others.

A new policy is now in effect: you cannot receive a passport if you owe over $2,500 in child support (you may receive your passport once you pay it all off). This means that some people are finding lump sums of money so that they may go on vacation, or do business overseas. Thus far in 2007, 22.5 million dollars has been turned over to the correct parent because of this new policy... I guess I should note that it is completely coincidental that the "22.5 million dollar" number has been in two consecutive posts of mine now.

Any who, read all about it here.
