Jermaine Jackson

Pay Child Support

Or Go Directly to Jail

10/22/2013 5:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1022-jermaine-jackson-01

Jermaine Jackson could be playing to 5,000 people soon ... the inmates at a L.A. County Jail ... a place he may be calling home soon if he doesn't ante up back child support.

Jermaine is falling farther and farther behind .... he's required to pay baby mama Alejandra Jackson $3K a month for 13-year-old Jermajesty and 17-year-old Jaafar … but the mailbox has  been empty for months.

Court docs obtained by TMZ show … of the $12K that he owes in back payments … he’s only coughed up a measly 85 bucks.

The L.A. County Child Support Services Dept. has filed papers asking a judge to hold Jermaine in contempt ... which could put him behind bars for 20 days.

BTW, this isn’t the first time Jermaine has slacked off.  He belatedly paid $80,000 back in March 2011 … and anted up another $33K in back support this past May.  He's also had his wages garnished.

If the current case goes before a judge, Jermaine is gonna have a hard time explaining how he dropped $160K last month for a Ferrari.

CALIFORNIA COURTS
THE JUDICIAL BRANCH OF CALIFORNIA STATES:


The local child support agency (LCSA) is there to help parents and children with their support obligations. When a parent is late or fails to pay court-ordered support payments, the local child support agency can do 1 or more of these to collect support:


Credit reporting: Not paying child support on time can affect a person’s credit rating. The local child support agency will report each child support payment to major credit reporting agencies. They also report the failure to pay child support.


Passport denial: Anytime a person owes more than $2,500 in back child support, the U.S. State Department will not issue or renew a passport until all past-due support payments (also called “arrears”) are paid. If your passport application is denied, you will have to make arrangements with the local child support agency to make your child support current before traveling outside the United States. You will also have to make arrangements if your passport needs to be renewed while you are already out of the United States.


Property liens: The LCSA will file a lien against the real property (like a house or land) of a parent who owes back support. When the property is sold, past-due support may be paid out of the proceeds from the sale.


Suspending licenses: The LCSA can request that any permanent, state-issued license be suspended or withheld to collect back child support. The State Licensing Match System is used to match parents who owe child support with business, professional, and driver's licenses. These licenses include those for cosmetologists, contractors, doctors, teachers, lawyers, and more.


Franchise Tax Board Child Support Collection Program: The LCSA must let the Franchise Tax Board know anytime a person is more than $100 and 60 days behind in paying support. The Franchise Tax Board can take funds from bank accounts, rental incomes, royalties, dividends, and commissions. The Franchise Tax Board can also issue an Earnings Withholding Order and take real and personal property, such as vacant land, cash, safe deposit boxes, vehicles, and even boats, to collect child support.


Income tax intercepts: The Internal Revenue Service and the Franchise Tax Board can also intercept tax refunds to pay back child support.


Financial Institution Data Match: Many banks, savings and loan institutions, and credit unions in California and the United States report the assets they hold. These assets can be taken for payment of current and back child support.

Disability Insurance Benefit Intercept System: The LCSA can take part of state disability payments owed to parents who owe child support to pay both current and back child support.


Unemployment Insurance Benefit Intercept System: Part of state unemployment benefit payments due to the noncustodial parent can be taken to pay both current and back child support.


Worker’s Compensation Appeals Board match system: Lump sum workers' compensation awards can be taken to pay back child support.


Lottery intercept: Lottery winnings can be taken to pay both current and back child support.

If the LCSA takes any action on this list, you should start by contacting them to see what they require in order to stop this action (if they can stop it). If they cannot stop it or if you cannot meet their requirements, you can ask your family law facilitator for help.

The family law facilitator can help you understand what is happening, if there is anything you can do to stop it, and, if so, can help you figure out what to do.


BEFORE THE COURT THROW THIS "DEAD BEAT" IN JAIL!!!!!


1). SUSPEND HIS DRIVER LICENSE (HE WON'T BE DRIVING THAT $160...,000 CAR)!!!!!!


2). COLLECT HIS PASSPORTS


3). ANY REFUND FROM HIS 2013 TAXES, BANK ACCOUNTS AND ATTACHED PROPERTY LIENS!!!!!!!

This man has done nothing since he was a child. He and his entire family have lived by sucking money for their brother since he went solo decades ago, and even now with his death the family and Jermaine more than any of them it seems.

Hopefully that dirt bag goes to jail. I hope Momma does not use Michael's money for his own children to help this free loader out.

I Was About To Say    

Just how exactly did jermaine get out of africa when his passport was expired. California law states that if a person owes more than $2,500 in back child support the State Department of Child Support Services automatically informs the FBI.

The Feds then flag the delinquent parent's passport and once it expires, it can't be renewed until the person catches up on their payments. Sooo WHO worked this miracle for him????

Livvie...the whole family is pathetic. You can't even compare them with the Osmonds because the Osmond family was raised with values, morals and ethics. I'm still scratching my head to figure out how the hell this family of garbage was raised. The only thing they had going for them was that they were musically inclined. Otherwise, they should have been put out with the trash. This piece of crap Jermaine should have been in jail a long time ago. Interesting how he can afford a Ferrari, but can't afford to pay child support. I guess he was waiting for the insurance to kick in. Betcha he'll be selling that beauty pretty quickly. The two freaks who call themselves parents should be ashamed of themselves. They raised a bunch of talented losers. They are still waiting with their hands out for money coming from Michael's grave. DISGUSTING!!
