Default Child support while in custody

Does anyone know if child support still builds up while incarcerated? Looks like i'll be going away for a decade and don't want to come out full of debt

Yeah it does. It doesn't stop just because you get locked up. But you need to let the child support office know what's going on so maybe you guys can work something out and prevent them from putting out a warrant on you for non-payment. If that happens then that warrant will be waiting on you when you get released from the current charges.

Default Child Support

You need to file a petition with the court to stop it. Unless you do it legally, it still accumulates. My son was successful with his petition and will not accumulate during his time in prison.

He filed after he went to prison. I downloaded all the forms off the self serve site and sent them to him. Due to the length of his sentence (8 years, 3 months) and the lack of income, the judge ruled to suspend it during his incarceration.

The current order will continue until you file a petition to modify. No guarantee that they will set it to 0. They will ask about assets if mom contests it or if mom is receiving state aid. If you owe arrearages the interest will continue.

They can take up to 50% of any money you earn while in prison which goes towards restitution and fines, current child support and arrearages. When you file to modify be sure to include the amount you have to pay towards fines and restitution. The criminal Court can order up to 40% garnishment towards those. So, if you owe back or current child support make sure your criminal attorney has proof of it so he can ask for less. The lowest In our county is 20% by the criminal Court.
