There's Really No Good Excuse
My exhusband owes over 32,000 dollars in childsupport. He has stayed behind on his childsupport all along, but now he has not paid at all for 3.5 years. If the state catches up with him he quits working and hides. He does not call to check on the kids' well being, nor does he lift a finger to help with any of their needs.
