Abstract: 

For child support to be a reliable source of income for children, parents who are incarcerated need child support orders that reflect actual income. This PAID fact sheet highlights opportunities to encourage incarcerated parents to engage with the child support system, to reduce or suspend orders during incarceration to avoid arrears, and to offer post-incarceration child support services. As a companion to this PAID fact sheet, the incarcerated noncustodial parent policy chart reviews state modification practices, laws, and policies for incarcerated noncustodial parents.
