Criminal Nonsupport of Child

What Is Utah Criminal Nonsupport of a Child?

When you have a child (even out of wedlock) or take legal custody of a child, you receive certain legal rights and responsibilities. One of those responsibilities is supporting your child. If you do not support your child adequately (i.e., you essentially cause your child to become needy), you can be prosecuted for criminal nonsupport of a child.

What Are the Possible Punishments?

If this is your first time in Utah being prosecuted for criminal nonsupport, you will be charged with a class A misdemeanor, and you may be sentenced to jail. If you have been previously convicted of criminal nonsupport (even if it happened in other state), you will be charged with a third-degree felony.
