Tougher Penalties for Willfully Negligent Non-Custodial Parents not paying child support sign now

At this point I am asking legislation or congress to take a tougher stance on non-custodial parents who are WILLFULLY not paying child support as ordered. Currently state by state laws usually will 1. Take the non-custodial parents license away or 2. Take the non-custodial parents ability to renew their vehicles away. The penalty of non payment is in need of re-establishing. As a civil issue currently you are able to bring contempt charges against a Non-Custodial parent for Willful non payment. This fine carries a slap on the hand punishment.


At this time I would like to propose that States take a tougher stance on WILLFUL NON-PAYING non-custodial parents. Either by charging them with A) child neglect or B) child endangerment.


An example is this: If a mother who has custody of her children were not able to provide adequate housing, food, shelter, etc...she would be charged with either of the above. What is the difference between her or a non-custodial parent who is willfully not paying their child support. They are not providing the basic and adequate needs of their children either.


This is not a proposal for those non-custodial parents who fall behind yet are trying to pay their support, but for the WILLFULLY NEGLECTFUL non-custodial parents. I would propose that like the current situation, a court hearing be held to find the non-custodial parent guilty of WILLFULLY NEGLECTFUL non payment, and then the charges of the above be viewed in court.


As it stands today, there are a vast amount of custodial parents and children who do not receive the child support that is due and owing to them. The penalties at this point (state by state) are very lenient. If tougher penalties were to be enforced, then the ability to collect child support due and owing to the custodial parents would be easier to collect.
