Q: Just want to pay child support but can't figure out what I would pay. Ready to end the misery.

I'm tired of fighting for what is right for my son & getting smacked around by the ex-husband and the judge. Mediation was a joke. Sunday I took son's car away as punishment for being disrespectful to me. Just want to pay child support & walk away. I can't afford an attorney.

Timothy Denison answered on Mar 16, 2019

KRS 403.211 sets out the child support guidelines based on income. You can get a fairly good idea what to pay and then walk away from that poisonous situation.

Q: Could a non custodial parent get jail time for owing a large sum of child support?

He owes $8,000 in back child support and claims he didn't know he had to pay. He was never served and wanted a DNA test done.

Timothy Denison answered on Mar 2, 2019

If he was never served, then there can’t be a valid judgment against him. If he was served and has a valid $5,000 child support judgment against him, he can absolutely go to jail for the crime of nonsupport.
