What actions can be taken on a non-custodial father who is behind on child support and he is out running the streets on drugs?
He can be subsequently jailed for drug charges and that he's an
endangerment to his children due to the choice of lifestyle. Liens
can be placed on property of value like his car or anything of
value to get the behind child support. * Child support arrearages
is a civil matter and has nothing to do with the alledged drug
activities. Recovery of child support arrearages and enforcement of
child support orders can be done in two ways, by the custodial
parent filing a lawsuit in the state circuit court in the county of
residence or by enlisting the assistance of the state's child
support enforcement agency. If the father has visitation or
custodial rights and he is placing the child in jeopardy by his
lifestyle the custodial parent should request an investigation by
the state's department of child protective services.
