Program Description

The Problem:

The Family Court process can be very confusing and intimidating. Non-custodial and custodial parents alike may not fully understand the components of their child support order. As a result, non-custodial parents may not make child support payments in a timely manner.

Our Solution:

Provide parents with helpful information, tools for success such as vocational services, and payment monitoring throughout the first steps of child support payment to improve compliance.

How We Do it:

ERASE and Project Support staff conduct post-court interviews with newly-ordered, non-custodial parents that explain their legal rights and responsibilities. The parents receive information on their amount of court-ordered child support, proper payment instructions, probation procedures, and enforcement procedures. Their child support payments are monitored for the first six weeks of the effective date of the court order to ensure parents are compliant with Family Court. If a parent becomes non-compliant, a violation request is sent to the Child Support Enforcement Bureau for further action. Vocational assistance and help with job placement are also offered for individuals to help meet their child support payments.
