This project examines the relationship between suspending child support orders at the individual level, child support performance at the county-level and the receipt of federal performance-based incentives payments from the federal government to the state of Wisconsin. This analysis accounts for the criminal justice system experience of incarcerated payers by examining how length of incarceration, number of prison spells, and post-release correctional supervision are related to child support outcomes.
