If a person was in jail do they have to pay back child support?
You still owe the support. It wasn't the child's fault that the individual was in jail. And the child didn't stop eating or breathing while that individual was in jail.
Yes. To do otherwise would put them in contempt of court and they could be fined heavily and/or arrested and put in jail. But If you feel as if you don't owe the amount of back child support then you need to do a modification you can get all the info you need to do that from this site http://flchildsupportmodification.com/
Can you get your license back that you lost years ago from a DUI if you owe back child support that you are paying and have been paying and you are behind because you have been in jail?
The money if for the child not the parent regardless of the situation. That being the case arrearages and current support payments would be allocated by the child support enforcement agency of the state where the minor child/children reside. The payment(s) would be given to the person(s) who have legal custody of the child/children. If a legal guardian has been appointed the payment(s) would go to them.
YES!! They do have what is now called Child Support Jail && Court. They can keep you locked up for a certain amount of time. Like paying for a ticket by going to jail for a couple days. Or they also help you find a job so that you can start paying for child support. But they will automatically deduct 10-25% out of every check before you even get it.
What happens when their is an existing child support order and the parent paying the support goes to jail?
The other parent being jail has no effect on the child support order. The only difference is that the amount which is not paid during the incarceration will go into an arrearage/back child support, since the other parent has no income to pay it. The father must notify the court of his incarceration and request a modification of the child support order so that arrears will not accumulate.
Can a lien be put on a house that you buy while your husband is in jail for an unrelated reason but he does owe back child support?
Probably not. Extradition is the process used when a person is in custody in one jurisdiction, but has an active warrant in another jurisdiction. In most cases, child support is a civil matter, and therefore does not bring up the issue of warrants as in a criminal matter. If, however, there is some reason that a warrant has been issued with regard to the child support issue, then yes, the person can be extradited. The…
What happenes to child support when non-custodial parent goes to jail for anything other then child support?
Child support would stop for that period of time the parent is incarcerated unless they have some other means of legitimate income that would continue during the time they are in jail and could be diverted for that purpose. Child support obligations would resume upon their release and they would be expected to pay the amount that accumulated while they were in jail.
An obligated parent can be incarcerated, but it rarely happens as judges realize the person would then be without the ability to earn income and pay the ordered support. If the judge should decide to incarcerate a non compliant parent on a charge of contempt that person would be sent to jail, (not a state prison), in the county or perhaps city where they are a resident.
An order of commitment, if you are refering to child support, means that person has to pay current child support and possibly arrears as well and if that person does not comply with the court order they will be arrested and taken to jail. Added: The term can have several meanings depending on the context in which it is used. More must be known as to what it is that you are referring to in…
Your child support is not dependent on whether or not you live with someone else. The support is for the child and the child's expenses. The only way your child support should stop is when the child turns 18 and all c.s. payments have been fulfilled (including back pay), when the back pay is paid in full (regardless of the childs age), when custody is changed (i.e. CPS/DSFS removal, juvenile detention, you go to prison/jail…
If a person has been sentenced to jail fpr failure to pay child support is there anything the custodial parent fcan do to stop the non custodial parent from going to jail?
Child support may or may not be received, but it will still be owed regardless. Child support is never erased from the books until it is paid, assuming it is paid, even after the child becomes an adult. If the abuser is in jail and unable to pay, the tab will still continue to add up, but there is no assurance that it will someday be paid.
Answer 1: What you do for a lving means nothing. If you are ordered to pay child support, then you must pay it. Answer 2: The only time you do not have to pay your child's support legally is while in jail or prison. You will be charged with paying that missed amount back when you are released. If a situation arises in which the child is no longer your's, you may be released. This…
