A father who remains stateside while his child and her mother live back in India must pay child support according to U.S. guidelines, in spite of his protests that doing so would effectively render his wife and child "millionaires" in their homeland, a Pennsylvania Superior Court panel has ruled in an apparent case of first impression.
