Q: I got behind on child support because I was in jail and also missed the court date for it because I didn't know about it

If I pay the child support office as much as I can to show I'm trying to get caught up, will I still go to jail for being in contempt of court? And if I can somehow pay the whole amount I'm behind could I still go to jail for missing court?

Get your documentation of incarceration together to show the judge on your court date. Pay as much as you can on the arrearage prior to the court date and you probably will not be incarcerated.

If he pays the arrears, they will likely dismiss the case.

The child is already over 18. Only in jail for child support arrears. Can I serve a certain amount of time for the case to be dismissed completely and the back child support to stop? Or after serving time is it still going to be the amount till it all gets paid?

Yes. 6 months of serving for contempt; 12 months of serving on a misdemeanor nonsupport and 5 years if you’re serving on a felony nonsupport.
