Deadbeat parent is a term referring to obligor parents of either gender that have freely chosen not to be a financially supportive parent in their children’s lives. Primarily used in the US and Canada, the gender-specific deadbeat dad and deadbeat mom are commonly used by the child support agency to refer to men and women who have fathered or mothered a child and willingly fail to pay child support ordered by a family law court or statutory agency such as the Child Support Agency.Read More Here…

Dealing With Deadbeat Parents and Unpaid Child Support
By Jennifer Wolf , About.com Guide
When a parent is ordered by the court to pay child support and continuously fails to do so, he or she is commonly referred to as a “deadbeat parent.” This pejorative term is used the actual legislation of some states, and is often misunderstood. Parents who fall behind on child support due to job loss or unforeseen circumstances aren’t necessarily “deadbeats.” Deadbeat is generally reserved for those who have the means to pay, but do not. Parents who are unable to pay may be eligible for child support modification.
Stereotypes About Deadbeat Parents:
“Deadbeat parents” and “deadbeat dads” are not synonymous. Not all deadbeat parents are fathers, and not all non-custodial fathers are neglectfully behind on child support. In fact, there plenty of moms who have been ordered to pay child support, yet fail to do so, as you can see from jurisdictions that post lists of their most wanted deadbeat parents online.
Consequences for the Parent Who Does Not Pay:
There are several things the state can do when a parent falls behind in child support payments. These steps include:
* Garnishing his or her pay
* Refusing to allow the parent to obtain a legal passport
* Intercepting unemployment compensation
* Offsetting federal and/or state income tax refunds
* Enforcing jail time
Taking Action When the Checks Stop Coming:
If you are owed back child support payments, you should contact your local Child Support Enforcement Office to report the lack of payments. Be prepared to provide detailed explanations of the missed payments, as well as any information you may have about the parent’s last known location.
Inability to Pay:
It’s also important to be aware that many times the parent who is in arrears simply does not have the money to pay the child support payments. In some cases, payments may need to be adjusted to reflect the individual’s most current earnings. In other cases, the parent owes so much child support that the money will simply never be paid in full.
The Relationship Between Child Support and Child-Parent Visitations:
Child support is completely separate from visitations. In the eyes of the law, the parent who owes back child support payments still has the right to visit with the child. Therefore, any parent who is in distress over missing child support payments should take the steps outlined above instead of withholding visitations. Refusing to allow your child to visit with your co-parent because he or she has unpaid child support could jeopardize your good standing with the courts.Read More Here…
