I have never gotten how throwing a deadbeat parent in jail produces child support.

“I have never gotten how throwing a deadbeat parent in jail produces child support.”

Yeah, well- the law’s the law.

And who says “debtors prisons” are passe?

Only in America can you go to jail for a civil matter?

Wouldn't it make more sense to simply garnish the wages of the actual deadbeats, or force them to liquidate items of value that are not related to their ability to earn a living, instead of throwing them in jail?

Looks like we have another case of cops trying to show how "important" they are by going after non-violent offenders and skipping the violent ones, again.

And to think there was no trial by Jury even for the Civil “trial” which obviously was over more than the $20 mentioned in the dusty-old-forgotten 7th Amendment...

“In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.”

Family court just issues orders... very efficient...

________________________________________________________

The purpose of throwing them in jail is not for them to produce child support, but to punish them for not paying it in the past.

Course there is an easy way to avoid paying child support for your kids and not face jail time. It’s called marriage.

It works. LBJ’s plan does not.

There can be criminal sanctions for not paying child support in various situations:

I've seen what happens to the paychecks of guys I know who are paying child support.

Condoms are a whole lot cheaper (and in many cases free) so I have zero sympathy.

The simple majority of deadbeats are the mothers.

Support the divorce/cohabitation industry by buying things that you don’t need, generating revenues.

Initial Jobless claims jump in latest week. Unexpectedly Rises to 429,000

Or don’t, and become more self-sufficient. Look forward to the default, resulting small government and the chance for better business, political and social leadership, or not. What we do with the Political Correctness Depression is up to you. And no, a commie regime can’t survive on worthless money and lack of manufacturing (sustainable revenues). In Argentina, the gov. talks a lot but doesn’t do much these days. Most people there are attending huge barter meetings, while gov. folks look helplessly on.

I think one simple resolution would be to base the child support on which party asks for a divorce. The one who asks for it is the one that pays, and leaves the home as well. The other parent gets the home and the kids and any appropriate child support.

That is, unless things like domestic violence, drug use, “serious” (lost the house payment) gambling or unilateral infidelity can be proven.

Great but what about the deadbeat moms who receive the support payments and spend the money on themselves or their boyfriends instead of on their kids?

Although I agree with you in many cases, what about the one where the wife just gets tired of hubby and does a no-fault divorce and then keeps the kids and the house, and wants him to pay child support. And then in a down economy he finds getting work difficult?

Why do you think I’m not married? I’m 26. And life is real, real long when you make poor decisions.

They're probably being charged with a felony which would require an arrest and time in front of a judge.
