Missouri fathers: Make sure child support orders are enforced

Thumbnail image for 10609239_s (1).jpgIt used to be that mothers were favored in the courtroom when it came to who should receive child custody in a divorce. Typically, the mother would end up receiving primary custody and the father would have visitation rights that equated to every other weekend -- and in some cases -- an additional few nights during the week. The father was also normally the one paying child support to the mother.

Father back in jail again for unpaid child support issues

jail time-handcuffs.pngUnless parents have equal parenting time and are both earning the same amount of money, one parent will usually be paying child support to the other. The one who receives child support is typically the custodial parent. The amount that is paid is dependent upon several factors, including parents' gross incomes and child support that is being paid for any other children.

Facebook photos can wind up in family law cases

Time and time again we hear of stories in the news when what a person posts on Facebook comes back to bite them from a legal standpoint. Quite often people tend to incorrectly assume that their Facebook page is their little part of the Internet. However, the truth is that information can be taken off of a person's Facebook page and used against them as evidence in court.

Judge says no procreation for father who owes child support

A father who owes $50,000 in child support and $40,000 in interest was recently ordered to no longer procreate until he can prove that he can provide financial assistance for his children. Naturally, this ruling raises several questions and concerns, such as is this fair to fathers and if this is even enforceable?

Father arrested for unpaid child support in Missouri

Parents may think that they can get away with not paying child support by moving out of Missouri to another state. However, the truth is that failing to pay child support can lead to a felony charge and warrant out for a person's arrest. This means that if the parent is found in another state, not only will he or she end up getting arrested, typically he or she will also be sent back to Missouri.

Home detention, probation, for not paying child support

Paying child support is not something that is an option. Instead, most Missouri fathers who are paying child support are in a situation where they are court-ordered to do so. With this court order is a very specific amount that is typically due every week or every month. This means that if the amount is not paid, there can be criminal repercussions.

Child support and visitation are two separate issues

With today's current economy and many lay-offs it is not unheard of for a father to be behind on his child support payments due to financial reasons. However, when a dad is behind on these payments -- while for the custodial parent this can surely be frustrating -- this should still never be used as a reason behind limiting visitation time between a father and his child.

Facebook served search warrant in unpaid child support case

Authorities will pull out all of the stops when it comes to tracking down those parents who are behind on child support payments. A perfect example of this was recently highlighted when a search warrant was served on Facebook to try and learn more about a father's whereabouts. He reportedly owes more than $100,000 in child support.
