What Practitioners Need to Know About the New Federal Child Support Regulation

Friday January 13
2017

  • By: US Department of Health and Human Services
  • Location:
    Webinar , NY
  • Website: nlada.webex.com

On December 19, 2016, the Administration for Children and Families in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced a new regulation that impacts child support enforcement programs in states across the country. Designed to allow for more realistic and regular payments to the custodial parent or guardian, while also avoiding the accrual of huge arrearages by noncustodial parents, the regulation ensures that child support orders are calculated to reflect the noncustodial parent's actual ability to pay.


This free webinar will feature Vicki Turetsky, Commissioner of the Office of Child Support Enforcement at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and practitioners from the civil legal aid and indigent defense communities to discuss highlights and goals of the new regulation, and its impact on clients served by civil legal aid and public defenders. Join us on January 13 to learn what you and your program can do to assist your clients in child support establishment and enforcement proceedings.
