Man jailed for failing to pay child support

Few new parents fully recognize the responsibilities the birth of their new child entails. However, most new parents soon get a crash course in functioning with little sleep as they care for their demanding new addition. They soon learn that parents are solely responsible for their child's physical and emotional needs. To meet these, there is a need for financial support, and states such as Mississippi and others across the country take a parent's responsibility to support his or her child very seriously. For example, a parent who fails to pay court-ordered child support payments can face serious consequences, sometimes including a criminal conviction and even jail time, as one out-of-state man has recently learned.  

Mississippi child support guidelines

People choose to divorce for a variety of different reasons. Although the decision may be a difficult one initially, most people can ultimately agree that they have made the best decision for themselves individually as well as their families. However, couples in Mississippi who have children together face an entirely different, complex set of issues. These couples will always have some degree of relationship through their children. Having knowledge of state child support guidelines can help avoid surprises down the road.
