Failure to pay legal child support obligation, under 18 USCS 228

Federal Crime: Failure to pay legal child support obligation, under 18 USCS §228.
Normally, child support and other family law matters are under reserved state powers, not federal powers. Most criminal law is also under state powers unless it involves specific federal officials, or is across state or international borders.

Does the federal statute criminalizing failure to pay child support undermine state powers under federalism? Why or why not? Use the lecture notes to assist you.

Use and cite the statute and use linked cases and secondary sources from Lexis.com. Even if you find a final case decision on this question has been reached, post both pro and con arguments about whether Congress should have passed this law.
