We have a situation that is most unusual. My husband owes back child support for a daughter that is 22 years old. All child support is owed to the state as the mother is paid off. The last year of eligible child support the child lived with us but child support was still paid to the mother as there was no court order to change custody. My husband also spent 6 years incarcerated while child support still acrued. Now this child is in the Tennessee prison for women. She and her boyfriend had a son in 2002 which we started caring for in 2003 after the mothers incarceration in the county jail. The father of this child is also in the TDOC. We now have full custody thru the court. We have never recieved child support for this child and are actually owed more in child support than my husband owes for his back support. We are in a low income situation as we are supporting 2 of my children from another marriage. our income is only around 15,000 per year and we cannont affort to pay child support for a child who is in prison and support the children we have at home. My husband is due to go to court this month and we are trying to figure out if we can avoid him going to jail for this. are there any suggestions??
