Why can't you throw their sorry butts in jail for not paying child support? How does that work anyway? If they are not going to pay to support their children then they might as well be in jail if they are not sending any money. Who cares if they rot in jail!

The child support that is arrears is put on hold for 120 days. They see if the state wants it. If the state does then the state gets itand you dont get it. It is still put on your case as they paid that money to you. No that isnt fair but what can we do? It is ordered that my ex get ins. for my son but doesnt even after saying he will.

Why is it "okay" for the "mother's" to move on with their life and say "settle down" and have a family but when it comes to the "father" it is not "okay" to do the same? Meaning: The father is a "dead beat" or required to work 40 hrs a week while the mother chooses not to work at all or pat-time while demanding a "paycheck" each month for child support. Seems "exhausting" to me to focus on "money" rather than "communication" and finding that medium especilly when times are "tough" right now the "mother" always talks down the father. I don't get it? Please explain, as one time he was "good" enough for something and now if you can't have him you'll take his money and "true" spend it on other things then what it suppose to go to. I am a mother of 2 girls to one man thank you and yes he does pay support to 1 child and she is married now but does not contribute to society but wants more and more money but who cares whether or not he sees his child, she does not,(the mother). I don't see how this is in the best interest of the child or the the "children" especially when there is no job security like there use to be and putting childrens father in jail is not the solution "mother's" so wake up and smell the coffee and think about the lives you are ruining and move on with your life as you only have one life to live! You hard working, work till you die dad's - this goes out to you as I agree from a "woman" you have no "rights".

I just want to make it clear, that not all dead beat Dads are Dads, I got custody of my 2 boys when they were 4 and 6 years old, my ex owed me 12,000.00 in back child support, We went to court, I reduced it to 7,000.00, I'f she would start paying, she agreed and did not, then we went to court again, she was put on 10 years probation, think that scared her into paying, it did not, the state should get tougher on DEAD BEAT PARENTS... not just DADS. some of us are good guys..
dads are good guys too

I think dead beat dads need to go to jail if their child support is not paid. I had to force my ex to pay support to his child, we finally settled all to back support when she turned 20. Hopw sorry is that

I took my ex to court through the attorney General because those children deserve both parents support. The attorney General is for the children

maybe if all of ya'll would have read the bible, got to know someone real well and maybe even get married before you started spittin out the babies none of you would be in this position, you might have had relationships that worked..... just joking..... seriously though you all have rights to have a court appointed attorny, may not be as good as one you spend the big bucks on but would deffinately be better than nothing.

you people who are taking up for dead beat parents have never had to raise a child/children on one income. It's hard! No the child support should not go in an account for the kids. If the parents were still together that money wouldnt go into an account it would go on bills or grocery's. So if the guardian gets child support and it goes on bills, the child is better taken care of that way. Now if child support is paid & the guardian doesnt keep a roof over the childs head and clothes on them, then the payee should say something. The guardian diserves help and that support.

Not in civil court. In criminal court, yes, civil and administrative courts = no.

What pisses me off is how deadbeat Dad AND MOM say I am not paying anything because they won't let me see my kid.

Well, regardless if you see that child or not it still HAS TO EAT< HAVE CLOTHES AND A PLACE to LIVE, so why not get a lawyer and see your child that way instead of making excuses not to send money. I know( I THINKI KNOW) that food clothing diaper ect do NOT count as child support \. Why not take these things anyway and that child will still growing up know mom or dad cared for them even if they could not see them. DOes that make since?

Let me check a few things, I know my daughter went the the A.G. and it didn't cost her anything, they take it out of the fathers pay check and send to her, and he had to pay the P.D.
I have not had to deal with this problem but I now many of my friends have! I have never understood how one parent wants nothing to do with the "child" and then when the "child" is grown here they come wanting to play mommmy or daddy and the sad thing is the "child" falls for it. I can help you find information if you need me to.

The system is not fair to the fathers. First the only thing the attorney genral cares about is how many $ he can say he collected for the child support system. I know as I pay and receive support. Every 3 years my account get audited, and every 3 years my support increases, which is fine I owe what I owe. Now with that being said, the person who is supposed to pay child support to me, holds a job for about 6 months and then goes without paying for about 4. This has been the norm over the years, until the last 6 years and a steady job has been held. But she has never been audited, nor has the amount gone up. I gotta wonder why.

you think every bit of child support should go for the child, what if one day it stops coming in for say 2 years and the father cant be found or he went to prison who buys cloths,food,xmas,birthday gifts,school pictures? Who buys the presents for a friends birthday party or you have to pay for a school shirt because the teacher said.What about school supplies coats ,school lunches.I could go on but you get what im saying.These are things that have to be paid with or most likely without support.What ever they pay its not near enough.
