Dennis Rodman could end up jailed if he doesn't pay child support

14582732_s.jpgFlamboyant retired NBA player Dennis Rodman was recently ordered to pay his ex-wife half a million dollars in owed child support. If he does not pay, the 51-year-old will most likely end up in jail.

In addition to having to pay the child support, with the threat of jail hanging over his shoulders, Rodman was also sentenced to informal probation.

In this case, while the story of Rodman owing child support and being ordered to pay $500,000 made the news due to his celebrity status and previous run-ins with the law, the fact that the 51-year-old could end up behind bars for not paying child support is something every Missouri father who pays child support should pay attention to.

In Missouri, failure to pay child support can result in similar consequences. This is why it's important to talk with an attorney before payments are missed.

In cases where there has been a significant change in income since the original child support order was issued, it may be possible to have a modification made to that existing order. However, this is something that needs to go through the courts and not just discussed between parents.

On the flip side, parents depend on receiving child support. This money goes to important things, such as housing, food and clothing. If a paying parent has fallen behind, and there is no modification in place, an attorney with experience handling child support cases should be contacted in order to figure out what options may be available in order to collect what is owed.
