I know you can only get ktap for a year and you have to sign a paper saying you will give up your child support to the state when the father pays but how do they determine how much you get? My kids dad never pays so I'm hoping the state will start taking action against him because the child support office hasn't done anything since I filed for child support three years ago. Has anyone ever had Ktap and has put the non-custodial parent in jail for not paying his child support to the state?

I have had ktap before and I have never heard anything about having to give up your child support once they receive it, They want you to start getting child support from the father, thats why they ask you information about your childs father.

if your baby daddy has amount to pay for child support then I dont know why after three years they havent done anything. I know people that are only a few months behind and they go after them. i would go up there and talk to them again.

If you receive ktap you have to give sign a paper saying you give them permission to receive your child support because the state will be giving you their money even if the father doesn't pay and for them to take legal action against him if he doesn't pay. I have called once, twice sometimes even three times a month and I have met with the county attorney twice and all they say is they can't find out where he works then when he goes to court, Farris gives him chance after chance to get a job but he never pays more than two months at a time. He misses more than he pays. He $8,000 behind and i haven't received a payment since late August and in December Farris sent him to the Jo program or some program for retards to help them find a job and I still haven't gotten a payment. I just cant believe it! I've heard if you get on Ktap and he doesn't pay his child support the state sending there butt to jail because they want their money. So I'm thinking maybe that will make him realize he can't quit every job when they start taking child support out of his check.

If you sign that paper be prepared to sign over all rights to back pay child support too. You will only get $225 a month. Doesn't matter if you have one kid or two. That's the amount you get. If child support is higher then the 225 then you will get the remainder but you cant get both. You have to stay on the county attorneys office in order to get anything done. Do the investigative work for them and then push for a warrent. You have to stay on the sheriff's office to enforce the warrent too. If he had any kind of job at all then when tax times rolls around it should be sent to you. If I were you I wouldn't sign up on KTAP unless you absolutely have to.

You can get ktap for a total of 5 years. If you get child support, the state takes it to repay the ktap. If the baby daddy don't still don't pay, yes the state will put him in jail once he owes a certain amount to them. They will also take his tax refund every year until he is paid up. And it's not $225 a month for everyone. It's that much for one child. $262 for and 3 something for 3 kids. Plus, you can get a child care check and a transportation check. My sister used to get all that and she ended up getting almost $800 a month.

I am married to the father of my youngest child. My oldest child's father wont pay. We have been okay for the last 5 yrs but need help now. I was wondering if we could get k-tap on my oldest child without them wanting to go after my youngest dad who is in the home with us? Some one told me that I would have to pursue child support on him and that didn't seem fair to me cause he is here with us he has just been injured and will be out of work for a while for surgery and that's were k-tap could come in handy since we don't get child support.

You don't get "child support" from your husband. Go talk to someone about the Ktap. They will explain it to you.

Okay u get more than 225 for two kids u get 262... U also don't loose your back child support. It's back child support they can't take the past money when you weren't getting help. And when it enters back child support its no longer technically child support its like a debt they owe.

There are a lot of rules with ktap. I did do it but got off of it as soon as I found a better job

Good luck

You can get child support from your husband. When my x and I first separated I filed for support. Later we got back together and they wouldn't drop the case. A couple years later we ended up getting a divorce. I believe ktap is only for single parents but I'm not 100% sure on that since its been over 12 years since I was on it.:)

You can't draw child support on the father who lives with you. And yes, you can include him in a ktap case. I had to when my oldest daughter was first born because he lost his job right before then.

Ok. I was referring to her husband that she is still living with as a husband. Not somebody that she's separated from.

I know, we did get back together and lived in the same home for 2 years as I collected child support from him!!! I was just saying it was possible.
