What penalties can a parent face for not paying child support?

Pennsylvania family court judges award child support in order to provide for the best interests of the children brought before their benches. Child support is not punitive against a parent; rather, it is ordered so that children affected by parental separation or other legal problems are adequately provided for from their non-custodial parents. Child support is intended to address a child's financial needs and when it is ignored by a paying parent, consequences can result.
