County Child Support Services avoids one size fits all
These include the newly revised Debt Reduction Scheme, a program that offers eligible parents the opportunity to reduce the amount owed to the government for overdue child support payments. The debt, known as “arrears,” is now based on parents’ ability to pay rather than flat percentages, giving defaulting parents some relief from their federally owed debt.
According to a county news release, it’s important for child support services to recognize that one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to family support, which is why California child support services and local child support offices statewide carefully consider each parent’s needs and make allowances the process adaptive and collaborative. Childcare professionals help both mothers and fathers achieve the financial stability needed to care for their children and ensure their payments help each other cover essential services like rent and childcare.
