When a parent required to pay support fails to do so, the Court may enforce child support in a number of ways, including, if certain factors are present, holding the parent in contempt, which can result in incarceration. A Court may only put the parent who fails to pay child support in jail, however, if the Court finds that the parent has the ability at that time to pay some amount of support, and if the parent is jailed, then they may obtain their release from jail by paying that amount of support. This is called a “purge” amount.
If the other parent is not paying child support, or if you have not paid your support and the other parent is trying to enforce the payments, we can assist you in determining all of your options.
