My xh is amost 9k behind in CS. I am pretty sure he will be going to jail since he hasn't gotten back on track and only has about a week to do it. Anyway, if he goes, does his wife get any visitation with my kids? I'm pretty sure she won't but it seems anything is possible anymore :/

No, his wife does not get visitation with your children, she has no legal right to them. Nor can visitation be passed on to someone else just because visiting parent is in jail.

Thank you! I didn't think so but I also have never been faced with this kind of situation before

Nope,no visitation for her and bail money should be going to you if he gets bailed out

Really? Bail money comes to me, that's interesting but good to know. It's not easy financially supporting 4 kids with babysitting money...Thankfully my boyfriend pays rent and helps, but he doesn't bring home much more than he has in bills...

No. Visitation is only dad's. SM has no rights.

The visitation is only with the dad. The bail money is used toward the back support that's owed.
