Consequences of Not Paying Child Support

Will I be thrown in jail if I can’t afford to pay my child support?

If you make a good faith effort to pay something each month, it is unlikely that the Court would hold you in contempt and throw you in jail. However, even if you are unemployed, the statute requires that you pay at least $50 per month for child support.
