Nope, it sure doesn't. But since he (or even she) can't bother to pay for his child, he needs to be punished in some way, shape or form. I've sat in family court, if someone can't pay for their child support obligation, even owing back child support to the tune of thousands, they can request $10/week payments. Or whatever they claim they can pay.
If you read my original post, you will understand that I have zero tolerance for child support dodgers. My father in law still owes $33,000 for 4 children he left ranging in age from 10 to 15 over 2 decades ago. He did everything in his power to not have to pay for those children. Moving out of state, working under the table, marrying a woman so he can get things in her name, etc... All that because he wanted to fvck around on the mother of his 4 children, who for the first 10 years of her children's lives, she was a stay at home mother and she had no skills (this was the 70's, early 80's) to get a good job, so she took a job at a fast food joint to support 4 kids working all hours of the day/night?????... But when he left her for strippers, the authorities back then couldn't, or wouldn't do anything more than send demand letters for support to help with those 4 children. So yes, by all means I will say it again, LOCK THE CHILD SUPPORT DODGERS UP, suspend their drivers license... I don't really care. They NEED TO PAY FOR THEIR CHILDREN. PERIOD.
ETA: 3 out of 4 of those children made up the rest of the prison population at some point over the next 10 years after child support dodger left.. see a cycle? One support dodger = 3 prison inmates.
