Child Support Should Be A Felony

73 Signatures Goal: 100

There are so many of us parents that are fighting a deadbeat parent both men and women. It takes two people to have a child and by law both parents are responsible for providing for their child. Which brings me to the issue of deadbeat parents I personally am fighting a deadbeat father; he is behind over twenty three thousand dollars in child support. Here in Tennessee non-payment of child support is only a misdemeanor and not a felony, therefore when a deadbeat parent has a warrant for contempt of juvenile court they will not extradite the deadbeat from another state. This is where we need your help. Please sign the following petition so we can have this law changed. Owing back child support should be a felony and we want this law to change now! I know that if any of you are like I am, it is hard to live pay check to pay check and you get very frustrated knowing that your deadbeat parent is getting away with not paying what is court ordered to you not to mention what is rightfully owed to your children. NOT PAYING COURT ORDERED CHILD SUPPORT IS A CRIME AND SHOULD BE TREATED AS ANY OTHER CRIME. JAIL TIME! Thank you for your support in advance!

    I am dealing with issues as well. My ex is in Texas, Me in ohio. He owes back childsupport of over 34 thousand dollars, I've been begging ohio for help but they say Texas must do the enforcement. Texas took him court put him on 5 year probation, he got off in a year with only 2 payments ever made. My family continues to struggle to pay bills, visiting food banks to make it, I have no idea about him. I haven't had contact with him in years. We have 4 children together. I had to have my csea case manager messaged the one in texas to see about his license being suspended, Every time he gets a job, they withhold, he quits. It's a never ending chain. Something somewhere needs to be done, And it needs to be done. Nation wide. There are plenty of people going through what we are. And that is a crime.
