I was wondering if it has ever happened to anyone? Even more specifically, Missouri? Or just anywhere? My daughter's deadbeat father has an under the table job to avoid paying support.
Has your deadbeat ever been jailed for failure to pay child support?(3 posts)
My sons father owes over 11,000 in back child support and has been off and on jobs. I asked the state I live in as well as the state he lives in why he has not been arrested or his license suspended and they say that they give them 60 days to find a job and if they do not find a job within 60 days they give them an additional 30 and somehow he always finds a job for about 3-4 months. I received 40 bucks a month when he was on unemployment! I blame the states for letting theses deadbeats get away. My son's father bought a new car and goes to clubs like crazy (from what i use to hear). I don't even recieve his taxes and I'm still trying to figure that one out.
Have you tried having your attorney file a contempt of court? Depending upon the judge the 1st offense he might just get a warning but if it is the 2nd, or 3rd offense he should/will get jail time. I'm in the process of doing this with my ex. My attorney is filing the paperwork if he does not pay me but of course this is costing me a pretty penny.
