Can I go to jail for not paying child support?

Child support arrangements are legally binding in the state of Texas, and are therefore enforceable under the law. As a result, parents who fail to comply with the terms of an established child support agreement can be subject to a number of enforcement procedures and/or legal penalties. If your child’s other parent has failed to pay child support for whatever reason, he or she could be forced to pay monetary penalties and/or serve a jail sentence.
