WHAT HAPPENS TO CHILD SUPPORT IN AREARES WHEN THE PARENT OWING

Customer Question

WHAT HAPPENS TO CHILD SUPPORT IN AREARES WHEN THE PARENT OWING GOES TO JAIL DO THEY STILL PAY?

The arrears will still be owing if money was owed prior to the parent going to jail but if the parent has no income while in jail then the parent cannot pay support.So the parent in jail can bring an application to the court to vary the order reducing the support to zero until the parent is released from jail. Let me know if you need further information than that.
