Issues Related To Noncustodial Parents And Services To Assist The Payment Of Their Arrears

Episode 7 of the Custodial Support Forum provides insight into what many would say is a flaw in the Child Support Enforcement system within America, when a Noncustodial Parent loses their job and is unable to pay their child support.


In Part 1 of Episode 7, a Noncustodial Parent discloses how the court denied the opportunity to reduce his child support obligation after losing his job.  The continued obligation led to an accumulation of arrears, which triggered an arrest warrant, and child support judgment on his credit report.  Never having a prior criminal record, he never received notice of the arrest warrant, and he was arrested.  After spending several months in the Bergen County Jail, he contacted the Custodial Support Foundation, and was provided with an attorney, who was able to convince the Judge to release him and reduce his child support obligation.

What Services Are Available For Noncustodial Parents Who Owe Arrears?

Answer: Amnesty Program

In Part 2 of Episode 7, Attorney Alexandra Stremler discusses how important it is for Noncustodial Parents to retain the services of an attorney to assist in their child support related problems.  She raises the issues that many judges feel if a Noncustodial Parent can afford an expensive attorney, they can afford to pay their child support arrears.  She explains how the Custodial Support Foundation Amnesty Program's cost effective legal fees, enables an attorney to represent a Noncustodial Parent can't afford to pay their arrears, when applying for a downward child support obligation.

Special thanks to Ariel Schochet for sharing his story on the Custodial Support Forum.
