***THIS IS A MUST READ*** Punishment for a first offense for failure to pay child support is a fine, up to 6 months in prison, or both. In the case of a second or subsequent offense or a case when the obligation has been unpaid for longer than 2 years or is more than $10,000, the punishment increases to a fine of up to $250,000, 2 years in prison, or both. Noncustodial parents convicted of these offenses must also pay restitution and/or settlements of the child support amount owed.
Each parent is equally responsible for providing for the financial needs of his or her child. But the court cannot enforce this obligation until it makes an order for support. When parents separate, a parent must ask the court to make an order establishing parentage (paternity) and also ask the court to make an order for child support. http://www.courts.ca.gov/selfhelp-support.htm
If you have been involved in a divorce or paternity matter, and a final judgment for alimony or child support or both has been issued, the Court has the authority to enforce its order by way of contempt.

"In the US, child maintenance is taken directly through payroll deductions from the non-resident parent's salary in most states – in the way that auto-enrolment pension contributions have started being deducted in the UK. When asked why this could not be extended to all child maintenance payments, the DWP spokesman said: "It's a completely different thing.""
