Child Support and Different Jurisdictions

Child support is regulated by State courts and thus is enforced by State jurisdictions.  If the parties reside in different states, federal laws can also come into play.

In some jurisdictions, child support payments are tied to visitation rights. If visitation rights are refused by the custodial parent, the non-custodial parent can petition the court to suspend support payments.  Other jurisdictions don't tie the two together for fear of damaging the welfare of the child.

Some jurisdictions require accountability for the spending of child support payments while others do not.  Often non-custodial parents cite the lack of accountability as one reason for withholding support payments.

Parents who live in different states can find themselves in violation of federal laws for not making timely child support payments.  Such laws provide for fines and even imprisonment, in some cases, for failure to make child support payments.
