Statistics of Deadbeat Dads

The statistics of deadbeat dads are grim, although it is not as bad as it was years ago. The use of computer technology has enabled agencies and law enforcement to locate a deadbeat dad and make them pay.

  
New laws have also made it easier to prosecute a deadbeat dad who does not pay his child support. If you want to avoid becoming one of the statistics of deadbeat dads, then you need to pay your child support.

A lot of men think that if they cannot afford to pay the entire amount, they should just skip the child support payment. This is because they are afraid of what will happen to them if they do not pay the full amount due. There are statistics of deadbeat dads in the paper all the time, including those who go to jail because of non payment. In order to avoid this from happening, a man who does not have the entire support amount should try to get a reduction in child support or an abatement. This is a court order that allows him to pay less permanently, or until he can get on his feet. The biggest mistake that men make is to ignore a court order to pay child support. Yet, judging by the statistics of deadbeat dads, a lot of guys are doing that.

Most men do not want to be part of the statistics of deadbeat dads. They love their kids and want to see them, but cannot afford to continue making child support payments. They may talk to their ex wife who tells them to pay up or else. A lot of women are ready, willing and able to put a guy in jail for not paying child support, even if he is the father of her children. A guy often gets scared and runs.

There is help for guys who cannot afford to pay their child support. They can bring in pay stubs and file a petition through the court so that they can reduce the amount that they owe. If they owe back child support, it can be added to the monthly payment. This can get the guy a break. As long as a dad can prove that he cannot afford to pay, the judge has to go by the statute. This is not costly and can end up helping a guy avoid becoming one of the statistics of deadbeat dads.

One thing about child support and visitation - the two are separate. If you are not allowed to see your kids because you are behind on your child support, seek an attorney. Even a guy who has fallen into the statistics of deadbeat dads is entitled to see his kids.
