Will Maryland extradite for unpaid child support?
No, it is not necessary as child support orders are recognized in all US states. That being the case whatever steps are needed to collect the monies owed can be done by the child enforcement division in the state where the obligated parent currently resides, is employed and/or owns property.

Thanks for the feedback!
When it reaches $5000, which in itself is a violation of the US Constitution.
It is highly unlikely that such action would be taken. Generally what occurs is the non custodial obligated parent will be denied a driver's license, state ID, or licensin…g of a vehicle in the state they reside. All states cooperate in child support matters including enforcement of judgment collections and/or warrants. If there is an active warrant for the person authorities have the right to decide whether or not that person is to be detained. Due to those facts extradition procedures are unnecessary. The non custodial, non compliant parent can have his or her wages garnished or bank account levied or property seized or encumbered by a lien.
Extradition from Mexico for child support would not happen as there is no treaty governing that with any country.
Child support issues are a CIVIL matter, not a criminal matter. The US will not extradite for civil matters.
No. Child support is owed to the custodial parent. The right to collect child support belongs to the custodial parent, not the child, even after the child is an adult they c…annot bring a suit for back child support. An adult child may be able to bring a suit for child support arrears on behalf of their parent's estate if they are the court appointed representative of the estate and any statute of limitations has not expired. In that case thy should consult with an attorney.
Yes, under Michigan law, MCL 750.165, failure to pay child support when due and owing is a felony. Every month a payment is missed, a felony is committed and may be charged if… the prosecutor or Attorney General chooses to charge an individual. 750.165 Refusing to support spouse or child as required by court order; violation as felony; penalty; exception; cash bond; suspension of sentence; bond; "state disbursement unit" or "SDU" defined. Sec. 165. (1) If the court orders an individual to pay support for the individual's former or current spouse, or for a child of the individual, and the individual does not pay the support in the amount or at the time stated in the order, the individual is guilty of a felony punishable by imprisonment for not more than 4 years or by a fine of not more than $2,000.00, or both. (2) This section does not apply unless the individual ordered to pay support appeared in, or received notice by personal service of, the action in which the support order was issued. (3) Unless the individual deposits a cash bond of not less than $500.00 or 25% of the arrearage, whichever is greater, upon arrest for a violation of this section, the individual shall remain in custody until the arraignment. If the individual remains in custody, the court shall address the amount of the cash bond at the arraignment and at the preliminary examination and, except for good cause shown on the record, shall order the bond to be continued at not less than $500.00 or 25% of the arrearage, whichever is greater. At the court's discretion, the court may set the cash bond at an amount not more than 100% of the arrearage and add to that amount the amount of the costs that the court may require under section 31(3) of the support and parenting time enforcement act, 1982 PA 295, MCL 552.631. The court shall specify that the cash bond amount be entered into the L.E.I.N. If a bench warrant under section 31 of the support and parenting time enforcement act, 1982 PA 295, MCL 552.631, is outstanding for an individual when the individual is arrested for a violation of this section, the court shall notify the court handling the civil support case under the support and parenting time enforcement act, 1982 PA 295, MCL 552.601 to 552.650, that the bench warrant may be recalled. (4) The court may suspend the sentence of an individual convicted under this section if the individual files with the court a bond in the amount and with the sureties the court requires. At a minimum, the bond must be conditioned on the individual's compliance with the support order. If the court suspends a sentence under this subsection and the individual does not comply with the support order or another condition on the bond, the court may order the individual to appear and show cause why the court should not impose the sentence and enforce the bond. After the hearing, the court may enforce the bond or impose the sentence, or both, or may permit the filing of a new bond and again suspend the sentence. The court shall order a support amount enforced under this section to be paid to the clerk or friend of the court or to the state disbursement unit. (5) As used in this section, "state disbursement unit" or "SDU" means the entity established in section 6 of the office of child support act, 1971 PA 174, MCL 400.236.
Until they are paid, but often take it when none is owed. see link below
All states will extradite for child support depending on the amount owed. Basically, if it's worth it for the state to do it they will. If it costs more to have you extradited… than what you owe you are generally safe. Added: Unless it amounts to a criminal warrant, there is no extradition for violation of child support orders - which is an order of the CIVIL court. HOWEVER - there are cooperative agreements in place among all states to enforce each others child support orders. Whatever state you happen to be in will enforce the original order just as if it was ordered by that state's court. You can't get away from it.
The US Constitution requires every State to honor the extradition requests of every other State. To answer your question, YES it is possible for Florida to extradite to Michig…an. It will depend on whether or not it is a felony case. My ex husband was just picked up in Pinellas Park, Florida on Saturday. He is currently waiting on extradition to Wayne County, Michigan for Felony Failure to pay Child Support. It will depend on how much your ex owes, and who goes after him. Normally, the child support office will not request extradition. Have you considered contacting the Attorney General's Office? They may be able to give you additional help with this. Hope this helps!
As an asset, it can be attached, even in cases of retroactive support for a child the man never knew existed.
They receive federal matching funds for child support enforcement, as to refusing to do so could affect getting that money.
Since being over $5000 in arrears in child support is a federal felony, most every state would need to extradite. It's unfortunate they don't do the same for denial of v…isitation.
You need to run a web search for Maryland Fathers rights. Be careful in that often attorneys set up these sites for the sole purpose of getting clients. There should be a limi…ted cost, or no cost, to join. I've been a member of the Children's Rights Council since 1988, which is based out of Maryland, however it is not specifically a fathers rights group. It addresses the rights of children to a father. Properly, getting an education on your rights should not come with an upfront cost. This is a case with Dads House, which has members in every state. There are no membership fees and all materials are free of cost. see links below
Only when an order of contempt has been issued by superior court. See link below on contempt.
The short and simple answer is yes, you can be extradited - HOWEVER in most cases you are jailed in your local area for up to a year.
In theory yes, in practice it would not be necessary. All U.S. states and commonwealths honor and enforce domestic child support orders regardless of the state in which it… is issued as mandated by federal law. This means, no matter where a non custodial parent lives he or she can face the same penalties, such as loss of driving privileges or garnishment of wages or levy of bank accounts or liens against personal or real property and even incarceration.
