Mom's MySpace page digs up valuable tip in child-support case
By Joanna Poncavage,  Of: The Morning Call Newspaper - May 15, 2007

To collect child support, a single parent might hire a private attorney, file for a court order
through a government domestic relations office, or use a private collection agency. ''Those are
the three options,'' says David Conder, director of the Child Support Enforcement Council, a
professional organization for private collection agencies.

Those are the three official options. An Emmaus mother, frustrated by 13 years of official
stagnation in the usual channels, chose Generation C's fourth way -- that's C for
''user-generated content.''
Beth Ann Holderman in January put her case for her daughter's child support on
MySpace.com, the social networking site widely used for virtual meeting and greeting.
( http://
www.myspace.com/missingdeadbeatdad )

It delivered what domestic relations didn't: Four months later, she had an anonymous tip,
and she had her man. He was in Vermont. She had a bounty hunter ready to handcuff him
and take him to Lehigh County. She also had mercy.

''It would have been more satisfying to the ego to hook him and transport him, but dad
working is better than dad in jail,'' says Holderman, who did what she felt was best for her
daughter and decided to transfer enforcement of the child support order to Vermont.

Whether any child support payments will be forthcoming, any time soon is yet to be seen. The
bureaucratic wheels of the child support enforcement system are much slower than the speed
of information in cyberspace.

''The world is not as big as you think when you utilize the World Wide Web,'' says Holderman.

Like many other parents of children who don't receive support payments, Holderman might
have accepted the status quo and gone on with her life. But her daughter didn't.

''She's the one who asked me to find him. That's why I'm doing this,'' she says.

When creating her MySpace page, instead of the usual personal details and photos set to a
soundtrack of favorite music, Holderman posted her plea: ''Hello World Wide Web -- I am
requesting world-wide assistance. Here is a synopsis of the case to date, and I have all
documentation supporting the facts,'' her tale begins. She also posted a picture of her child's
father.

A tipster responds:

The anonymous tip directed her to another MySpace page, one that had been posted by her
daughter's father, where, under an alias, he dubbed himself
''Man on the Move.'' He described
himself as ''your typical eclectic, largely acoustic, fingerstyle, alt-tuning singer/songwriter''
with a ''fairly anti-corporate'' philosophy looking for a recording contract or a vegan, organic
commune. ''I really don't know where I am headed, but I'd like to travel the world.'' (
http://www.myspace.com/joshuagar )

Armed with the alias, Holderman followed his virtual trail through an online vegan forum
and dating match site, to the Web site of his sister's Vermont vegan bakery. (
http://
www.lizlovely.com) And when the bounty hunter (
http://www.newenglandbailbonds.com )assisting Holderman called the bakery, Joshua
Garlathy, her daughter's father, answered the phone.

Holderman, 35, had filed for child support in 1993, shortly after their daughter, Sahrin, was
born. She and Garlathy met while both were studying psychology at Indiana University of
Pennsylvania in western Pennsylvania. ''The idea was to stay together,'' she says. Things
didn't turn out that way.

When Garlathy was laid off from a minimum-wage job, Holderman filed for support through
Indiana County's domestic relations office as part of her application for welfare. When
Garlathy failed to pay an assessment of $100 per month, his driver's license was suspended.
Then, he disappeared into Canada.

Originally from Emmaus, Holderman moved back to the Lehigh Valley. In 1998, Garlathy
contacted her via a mutual friend's e-mail, with hopes of re-entering Sahrin's life.

He wanted Sahrin to spend summers in Canada with him and his wife, son and stepdaughter.
But he was unable to pay child support, he wrote. ''I have been sick for the last four years and
haven't had a job in that time.''

Holderman turned his e-mail address over to her Lehigh County Domestic Relations
caseworker.

''I hadn't heard from him in five years,'' she says. ''How could I trust him to take responsibility
for her?''

Mom's MySpace page digs up valuable tip in child-support case
By Joanna Poncavage Of The Morning Call

On the move:

Garlathy's e-mail account yielded an address in British Columbia, so Holderman signed her
case over to Canadian child-enforcement authorities. When Garlathy failed to appear for a
hearing in Lehigh County court in 2002, a bench warrant was issued for his arrest. Several
years of legal proceedings followed, but by 2006, Canada no longer had a current address for
him.
At the end of January 2007, Holderman received a letter from Lehigh County domestic
relations stating they had an address for Garlathy in Portland, Ore. She was given the
opportunity to transfer enforcement to that state, but chose not to, afraid that by the time
the case was transferred, Garlathy would be gone elsewhere.

Holderman may know more about her chances for success than the average single mom: From
2003 until 2006, she worked as a court monitor for Lehigh County Domestic Relations,
transcribing the words of hundreds of child support hearings.

That's why on April 18, Holderman drove to Vermont. The 2002-issued civil bench warrant
she carried for Garlathy was valid in Pennsylvania only. At least, she was determined to get
proof of his residence and employment.

Money sought:

In the 13 years since Sahrin was born, Holderman says Garlathy has paid a total of $410 in
support, and owes tens of thousands of dollars more.

Garlathy declined a request to present his side of the story. ''My attorney has advised against
any attempt to try this case in the media,'' he wrote in an E-mail.

A press release from his employer (Sister, Liz Holtz), however, calls Holderman a ''stalker
mom'' and states that Garlathy, finally well enough to work, recently made his first child
support payment since 2002.

Rosemary McFee, director of Lehigh County Domestic Relations, says her office had also been
notified of a possible Vermont address for Garlathy, and would have initiated the paperwork
needed to verify it, and enforce support collection.

Holderman says Lehigh County found Garlathy because she told the state office of child
support enforcement where he was.

Her efforts to track down a delinquent dad may be a glimpse into the future, but her plight is
all too human.

Nationally in 2005, state and county agencies collected $17 billion from non-custodial
parents -- about 85 percent are fathers -- for 8 million children. According to the Child
Support Enforcement Program, $12 billion owed by non-custodial parents to another 8
million children was not collected.

In Lehigh County alone, where Holderman's case is on file, the domestic relations office in
2006 had 15,000 open cases that paid $44,153,894 in child support. Unpaid support totaled
$50,852,621, says McFee.

Most people who pay support cooperate with the system. According to the American Payroll
Association, a nonprofit professional organization, more than 70 percent of child support is
paid through wage withholding dollars.

In the cases with enforcement problems, domestic relations relies on automated processes and
data matches that help locate people through their driver's licenses, Social Security number
or employment. But if someone isn't on record, they can be hard to find.

Holderman got the idea of using MySpace (''a place for friends'') when she saw a report on CNN
about the family of a Chicago dentist that was trying to find his murderer using MySpace.

MySpace took her first page down, and she was told posting pictures of other people was not
allowed. She then built a MySpace page accessible from her Web page design business,
http://www.bethannenterprises.com .

Getting the word out:

''The Internet is the largest mass media Mecca ever and it was the only way I was going to get
the word out and notify the public that he had been missing since 2005 and no governmental
action had been taken,'' says Holderman.

By Joanna Poncavage Of The Morning Call

With so much overdue child support out there, other families are using MySpace to spread the
word about debts owed. A search for ''child support,'' ''deadbeat parents'' or ''deadbeat dads''
turns up hundreds of thousands of profiles: children or mothers seeking missing fathers,
non-custodial fathers making their case that the system is part of the problem, and a few fans
of the alternative/punk band, Deadbeat Dads.

Private agencies look to MySpace for leads, too. ''That is one of the things our investigators
will check,'' says Tim Turner, director of enforcement with Support Collectors, a private
agency in Minneapolis. ''People brag about how much money they are making. They post
pictures of their Jag or Harley, trying to woo the women, then go to court and plead poverty''
instead of paying support, he says.
Power of the Internet

State and local child support collection agencies have recognized the power of the Internet,
too. Montgomery County was the first in Pennsylvania to create a Web site to list the names of
people with outstanding warrants for both criminal and domestic cases. In six years, back
child support owed has fallen from about $11 million to about $3.2 million, says Sheriff John
P. Durante. It's a very active Web site, updated every day, and a lot of people look at it, he
adds.

Lehigh County Domestic Relations is looking into putting deadbeat parents on a Web site like
Montgomery County does, or publishing names in the newspaper like Berks County does, says
Rosemary McFee, Director.

Child support collection efforts can take even more creative turns. A county agency in Ohio
recently started putting pictures of delinquent parents on pizza boxes.

''The Internet has wrought many great things, but I think it's a technology that's constantly
changing and the way we use it is constantly changing,'' says John Gorham Palfrey VII, law
professor and executive director of Harvard University's Berkman Center, at 10 years the
nation's oldest research center on Internet law. ''Whether it becomes a force for good or for
bad is very much up to us, and I think it's a work in progress.''

That it turns people into creators of information instead of just consumers is positive, he
adds. ''My hope is that it leads to more civic participation and active involvement in the shape
of culture and meaning.''

''There's a new world of collaboration on the Web,'' says Don Tapscott, author of ''Wikinomics,''
a book with the subtitle, ''How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything,'' that describes our
new age of participation: ''It's getting a million minds to work on a problem, instead of a
department. That thing you are looking for is somewhere out there, outside the boundaries of
your bureaucracy.''
