The child support and criminal justice systems interact in numerous ways. Parents may be incarcerated for child support noncompliance. In addition, most parents do not fulfill their child support obligations (and their children do not receive child support) during periods of incarceration. While incarcerated, they typically accrue arrears and thus exit jail or prison with child support debt.
