Can Failure to Pay Child Support Be a Felony?

If the court has stated a belief that a felony has been committed, then it is a possibility you could be convicted of a felony with child support.

This was demonstrated by the courts in the case of State v. Duprey 149 Wis. 2d 655, 439 N.W.2d 837 (Ct. App. 1989). The court accepted the father's motion that the felony be reduced to a misdemeanor, stating that the state had failed to prove he made income for 120 days. The state appealed, and the court of appeals reversed.
