Child Support and Dead-Beats

Parents ordered by a court to pay child support who avoid their support obligations are often called dead-beats; either dead-beat parents or dead-beat dads.  Recently sources estimate that over 50% of child support cases are in various states of arrears.

Parents behind in child support payment often cite payments that are too high for them to make, that they are excessive, that they have no control over how their payments are spent, that they are not given visitation rights, that they are not the true parent or that they no longer want their children or responsibility for them.

Some states have enacted laws allow courts to suspend the driver's license, business license or other state licenses of dead-beat parents who are significantly behind in child support payments.  Also, wages, tax refunds, lottery winnings and other funds they may receive from from state and federal sources may be garnished or confiscated by child support enforcement agencies.  In certain cases of severely delinquent dead-beat parents, federal law allows for the imposition of fines and up to two years in prison for the parent.
