Does the grandmother has the right to put father on child support if they are still married and the nother is incarcerated?

Do you have guardianship? It sounds like (from your question) you are raising the child not the mother or father. If this is the case you need to file for guardianship which will then award you child support from both parents (regardless of whether or not they are incarcerated). If the mother is seeking support she can go to the state and they will impute his income (guess what his income would be if he were working) if he has no college education they will impute the income at the rate of 40 hours a week at minimum wage. The state will then do all of the legwork to have child support assigned and make sure he is served in prison
