The New Proposed Child Support Rule: What It Means for Low-Income Fathers
On November 17, 2014, the Office of Child Support Enforcement issued a proposed rule entitled Flexibility, Efficiency, and Modernization in Child Support Enforcement Programs. The new rule proposes revisions to existing law that could significantly alter Child Support Enforcement program operations and enforcement procedures, especially for low-income fathers. Broad in scope, the changes touch on a variety of areas, including the establishment of child support orders, job services for low-income noncustodial parents, and the modification of support orders for incarcerated parents.
This call will discuss the proposed regulation, it’s potential on impact low-income, noncustodial fathers, and steps you can take to weigh on the regulation before it is finalized.
