ABSOLUTELY NOTHING....They threaten to lock them up and take their state taxes but nothing ever happens to them, they get away with murder.

A warrant goes out for thier arrest and they are hunted down and does jail time sometimes or his paychecks are garnished. Thats if the mother goes to court and has proof that the father is not paying child support.

THERE ARE WARRANTS ISSUED TO DEADBEAT DADS AND THEY ARE USUALLY CAUGHT AND PROSECUTED

Their license gets suspended, income tax returns taken wages garnished, even can be put in jail.

Their paychecks get garnished, their income tax refunds go to pay off their child support debt, if they win at a casino the IRS puts it towards paying the child support debt, in some states if they have remarried and their current spouse is employed her income is counted and SHE is liable for the child support and in some states they are put in jail. They try to avoid putting them in jail because in jail they are not earning a wage that can be taxed or garnished.

They go to jail. I think that is a stupid law ! that kills the chance of him ever making a child support payment, because he is jail.


Prickly
If the father has been ordered to pay child support through the court and doesn't is at risk of having his wages garnished. If he is self employed the court has jurisdiction to not renew any business licenses he may have and also suspend his driver's license.

if the child support goes through the court, you can tell them and they will take out a warrant on him and put him in jail....but you have to remember that while he is in jail he is not making any money to pay anyway, and may lose his job due to being incarcerated. other wise talk to an attorney.


TLBFH
The state can take away their driver's license, their license to practice a profession, like real estate, their passport. The state can also garnish their bank accounts, their income tax returns. All of this depends on the state knowing where the deadbeat dad is.

If it is ordered by the courts then he will face fines and poss. jail time. If there is room that is! They can garnish his income.

You can take him back to court and they will arrange a repayment plan. If he fails to pay again they can put out a warrant for him and he will go to jail.

in most cases, nothing! some of us get lucky and make them pay though. or some get to spend time in jail and wish they had a job.

Sometimes i like to think the guilty eats away at them at night. Or, at the very least what goes around comes around. But thats only for the dead beat ones not the really hard done by ones.

I'm in Australia and if they DON'T pay child support , NOTHING happens to the fathers. The minimum amount fathers in this country have to pay per week is a lousy $6 per week..and these deadbeat Dad's (my ex included) wonder WHY we as mothers won't allow them access to their children......its ridiculous & so unfair to these precious children. They should stand up and be responsible if they cared. "But I care so much....."...prove it to me.
