Episode 7: Services to Assist Noncustodial Parents Who Owe Arrears
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.
The Custodial Support Foundation provides an Amnesty Program for noncustodial parents that owe child support arrears, have arrest warrant for unpaid arrears, revoked driver's licenses, revoked passports and income tax levies.
The program provides legal and collection services to enable noncustodial parents to establish settlement agreements to pay their arrears, suspend their arrest warrants, restore their licenses, restore their passports and stop income tax levies for the nonpayment of child support.
1. Noncustodial parents agree to an easy payment plan to repay all arrears, enter into a repayment agreement and completes a certification that is provided to the court to:
● Vacate Child Support Warrants
● Reinstate Licenses
● Reinstate Passports
● Stop Income Tax Withholdings
2. Agreements are established between the Office of Child Support Enforcement and a certification is prepared for the court to accept the motion of repayment.
3. Noncustodial parents provide all of the necessary information to enable the Office of Child Support Enforcement to garnish all future child support payment to prevent the accumulation of additional arrears.
4. Noncustodial parents make court appearances with a pre-accepted Motion for the repayment with the first payment to have the court grant the order to vacate child support arrest warrants, reinstate licenses, reinstate passports and stop income tax withholdings.
5. Noncustodial parents can live a fulfilled life that enables the privileges of the American Dream, without the fear and the threat of being arrested.
