Interesting article from a women whose father was a deadbeat Dad but who is against putting men who do not pay their child support in Jail. I have on a few occasions fought for child support payments from delinquent fathers to the point of getting them in handcuffs in front of the Judge. But invariably they pay a small amount of support and get out of jail. On one hand, without threat of jail there is a possibility that a person would not take child support seriously, but on the other hand, what good does it do to put a person in jail for not paying his debts. Nothing is simple.
