Deadbeats, Deadbrokes, and Prisoners

This report examines child support legislation with respect to incarcerated parents, and the policies that parents who are incarcerated are “voluntarily unemployed”, and therefore not eligible for modifications of their child support orders. The author proposes policies and legislation to alleviate these problems, and help incarcerated and recently released prisoners engage with and support their children.
