Leave it to Boyd County Judge Gerald Reams- let another deadbeat dad out of jail today with no bond for 2nd time for this same deadbeat in less than a year. What is the point of arresting them, locking them up just so he can release them as soon as the come into his courtroom, meanwhile the mothers and kids are struggling to make ends meet and living on state assistance. I think it is time we start replacing "deadbeat" judges, with judges that will do what they were elected to do!

I think men should care for their children but explain to me what good it does by keeping them in jail. If they are employed they loose their job. Why not just garnish their wages and if they quit their job to avoid paying, then put them in jail.

My husband kicked myself and our 3 month old daughter out into the streets so he could play house with his mistress. That was in August of 2011. He hasn't seen our daughter or paid a cent for her since then. He lives 2 miles from us. Sad stuff!:/

Because if child support is Court Ordered and the Order is not followed, a person can be held in contempt of Court and put in jail for the violation. Sometimes the threat of jail is the only way to get a person's attention.

I know of women that have completely abandoned their kids and left them with their parents to raise (the kids dads are useless and in jail all the time for drugs), can someone tell me why this is not a punishable offense the same as not paying child support? The grandparents fought and won the custody of the kids, kinda like a woman going to court for child support. The difference is the man not paying child support goes to jail, how come these woman didn't.

Any woman that abandons their children needs her reproductive system ripped out and put in a cell all alone. My first choice for the women, and I use that term loosely, would be to put them to sleep like the B itches they are.

If the grandparents got custody of the child or children then both the mother and the father have to pay child support. Sometimes they will be allowed to work it out amongst themselves other times it has to be court appointed. If the grandparents adopted the child then neither parent has to pay anything because they legally have no ties to that child.

She should. There should be a child support order that computes both mom's wages & dad's wages. If there isn't I'd be calling my lawyer back and asking that the job be done right.

Men who have the money should pay the money. It doesn't help anybody to put them in jail. And women who have kids are lucky to have them, don't spend you time being bitter and hateful over a man who doesn't step up and take care of them. They know if their dad is a deadbeat or not. I know some girls who have kids and settle for government assistance. They don't try to work. They can leave their kids with their moms all night and party but they say they don't have anybody to watch them while they work. I bet their moms would rather babysit while they work than while they lay out all night. And some men pay more child support to the government than what the government passes on to them.
