What happens when someone gets locked up a second time for child support? I heard they get 5 years, is that true?

Don't know if it is true or not...but the system stinks. Can't make money to pay the support in jail. There are "Fathers" out there paying a major % of their pay, and not allowed to see the child. There are women out there who spread their legs with the intent to get the payents, instead of getting real jobs.
Yes there are situations that call for certain support, but the current system stinks.

Thank you. I wasnt sure. My ex is behind about 16,000 on our two kids. He just doesnt pay it and lives out of state and was recently locked up. And this is the second time, and someone said he would get 5 years. So I was curious. I honestly would rather him not spend alot of time behind bars even though he has nothing to do with our two kids. Lessens his chance to actually pay if he ever decides too.

Since: May 12

Jails are overcrowded and as a non-violent crime I doubt if he does 6 months. Might as well sign up for state assisted support, or find a good man. I know it's tough but that's your options if you care about your kids.

You'll never get all of your money from him if he is that far behind. I know. I am almost 33 & my dad still owes over $10,000 in back support. He also loved out of state so they did pretty much nothing. He went to jail a few times & garnished his pay until he would quit that job. The only way they go after them is if you draw AFDC & then they will find them, but they take their money first & could care less if you ever get any support.

i don't think anyone should get child support because you shouldn't have a child unless your willing to proved for that child on your own woman knows the chances when they have sex so no i don't think anyone should get it and also it changes nothing my husband pays his child support on time every month but he don't have any rights to his kid he see him when the mother feels like it so i don;t blame people for not wanting to pay it i sure wouldn't if i didn't get 50 50 with the kid its unfair to all not just the mother but the child and father too

My parents were married when I was born. My dad chose drugs & alcohol over his family. He had visitation rights, but he chose not to see me. It takes 2 to make a child so a man could have worn a condom instead of having unprotected sex. I am sorry your husband doesn't get to see his child. The system doesn't work for most.

Well I was engaged and with my two kids father for 8 years. Its not like alot of cases where the two make a baby a month after dating. Our first didnt come till 4 years into our relationship. And he could see them if he wanted at anytime. But has choosen to live far away in the life of crime,drugs, and achohol. Big part of why we didnt work. And I dont expect anything from him. I have a good father figure for my kids. And even before hand I took care of my two alone without welfare or govt housing before I met my husband. I just was wanting to know what to expect since he is in jail a second time now for child support. Id rather him not spend too much time in jail to be honest. Thats just more in a hole he will get not to mention Im for sure not going to get a penny. But thank you everyone for the input.

Good luck to you Curious. I hope you somehow do get the money from him. He needs to man up & think of his kids.

How about men don't have sex with a woman unless he is willing to support her and a child for the next 18 years. Men have just as much responsibility, if not more in my opinion, as women do. If men looked at every woman they have sex with as someone they will have to support along with a child for a long time, it would really cut down on these situations. Don't have sex with women you don't want to have a child with and then this won't be an issue.

"The man could have worn a condom".
What about the woman could have taken precautions also?????
Birth control pills, etc. Keep your legs closed!
Be fair....it takes 2 like you say!!!

If the system made everyone accountable (including women), there would be less babies out of wedlock. The problem is the system allows for women who choose to make money off of their pregnancies do so.

Im really not trying to be rude, but not all people who have kids together think they will end one day. Like I said I know for me personaly we were planning on getting married and together for years before a kid came along. And I sure as hell dont depend on his support or the govts. Never have or else Id be up shits creek without a paddle. Though I know plenty that do. All Im saying is please keep in mind not all of us are the same who are owed child support. And yes since it takes two to make a baby, both should be responsible. And as you said some use it as a paycheck unfortunatly. I know my husband pays a good chunk each month to his ex for his one child and shes never once had a job a day in her life. Depends soley on his money and her others kids child support. Women like that is what makes these sorta situations bad when child support is suppose to be paid. Vs women like me who got a full time job to take care of mine.

He will have to pay something to get out also after they get so far behind its consider a felony , he may spend some time in jail or come up with a portion of what is owed to you or all of it that's what happened to my EX !

I do beleive all men should have to pay child support. But this person who is locked up for the second time in Hardin county jail for child support does not have a education pass 8th grade never got a GED and his father side of the family has a long history of mental issues and we do beleive he has them also. First job he had was at a fast food place. He didn't even make enough to pay child support family had to help kick in the rest. He had to move out of state to live with family in order to eat stay warm as he couldn't afford to live by himself. As he moved out of state looking for a job Hardin county locked him up. So when he got out still looking for a job was bugging the neighbor next door every day and finally got him a job 5 months later. During them 5 months he really did try but who wants to hire someone that has fugitive from justice and felony on back ground check and does not have reason why. Last job he had they hired him and boss really liked him had him start working before background check came back. 2 weeks later he was fired and was told he ran a honest business and didn't need him working for him to leave. Didn't even give him a chance to explain why. He has tried to get a job as he does live out of state but once they do a back ground check fugitive from justice pulls up felony. How Hardin county expect fathers to get a job by doing this crap. He is at the point to end his life. He feels this is a cycle with Hardin county. His education level and working at a fast food place how in the hell did they calculate child support. He is asked to pay the same amount as my ex does for 2 kids and my ex works as a Sheriff in another state. Does not seem right to me. Just curious as how to help him he has no one there in Hardin Ky no family no friends. He does not understand to ask any questions about child support or modification or who to help him. I am scared this time I won't see him again as he will just end his life.
