Can the custodial parent continue to receive child support payments if they are in prison in Tennessee?

If the parent is in prison the child is no longer considered to be in above said's custody. Unless it was an overlook by the state, the incarcerated parent should receive no benefits for the child, as those benefits are marked for use by the person or institution with physical and legal custody of the child or children.

Can a custodial parent sign over temporary custody if the non custodial parent is in prison?

No. Only the court can enter an order of temporary custody. With the non-custodial parent incarcerated and with the consent of the custodial parent the court would likely approve a temporary guardianship that is in the best interest of the child.

Does a non custodial parent still have to pay child support when the custodial parent is in jail?

Yes, unless the non-custodial parent gets custody. In that case the non-custodial parent must file a motion to terminate the child support order. The child support should be paid to whoever has custody of the child. If it's not the non-custodial parent then the child support order should be modified to reflect the party that should receive the child support payments. You have to pay for your child so you have to pay to the one who has custody while the other parent is in prison. If the state has custody you will pay the state.

When would one parent get sole custody of children?

If you are a father. You must prove the mother unfit, drugs, abuse, prison record, etc... IF you are a mother, depending on the state you live in they would allow soul custody because you are the mother. If the father is unfit and you live in Utah and/or California where they are for the father as well and want to do joint custody in most of those two states, the father must pretty much be unfit such as abuse, drugs and/or prison record for the mother to get full custody. That is pretty much when the only time I have known any parent to get full custody of their children.

Does a parent lose custody of child when the parent becomes incarcerated in the state of Missouri?

Think about this: Can the parent bring the child along to the Missouri Prison system to be raised by her? Probably not. Someone else has to have custody of the child while the mother is incarcerated. Probably, being incarcerated does NOT mean that the mother loses all parental rights. That's another matter, and usually takes some time to arrange.
