CHILDREN - MINORS - CRIMES - NONSUPPORT
SUPPORT BY NATURAL FATHER AND STEPFATHER Even though a stepfather is now obligated under chapter 207, Laws of 1969, Ex. Sess., to furnish necessary food, clothing, shelter and medical attendance for his stepchildren, the natural father of those children may still be subjected to a criminal prosecution for nonsupport under RCW 26.20.030 for failing to make court ordered child support payments.
