WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE WHEN THE FATHER FAILS TO COMPLY WITH THE MAINTENANCE ORDER /DECREE?
If the father fails to comply with the court-ordered child support payments, the court can order wage garnishment or attach other assets. In cases where there are no assets to attach, the court can also order the father's arrest. If arrested, the father will have to spend 6 months to 1 year in jail. Grandfathers are also liable to satisfy decrees of maintenance payable to minors, in addition to maintaining the minors themselves. This includes attaching any assets of the grandfather to the decree, in order to satisfy it.
