It's amnesty month for parents with late child support payments

Hamilton County mothers and fathers who owe overdue child support run the risk of losing their professional licenses and driver's licenses if they don't get caught up on the money they owe. However, the county is currently offering any parents who have already lost their licenses the opportunity for amnesty if they're willing to pay their back-owed support in full.

This amnesty will be available throughout August in celebration of National Child Support month. According to the director of the Hamilton County Job and Family Services, "It is in the best interests of the child that we establish an income stream so basic needs are being met."

The county wants to work with parents who have failed to pay their child support in order to reconnect parents with their children so that the kids have a better chance of getting the clothing, shelter and food they need. It's also the hope of the county that reunited parents and children will begin to deepen their relationships with one another.

At this time, approximately 25,000 to 40,000 parents in the county owe unpaid child support. As tragic and difficult to believe as it sounds, two-thirds of all child support cases in Hamilton County are delinquent.

The Child Support Enforcement Agency in the county manages approximately 78,000 child support cases monthly on behalf of approximately 234,000 residents of the county. Last year, the program collected $128 million on behalf of families that wouldn't have had the financial means to support themselves otherwise. This money went to pay for medical care, food, clothing, childcare and school supplies.

Professionals who owe child support may be able to defend themselves against disciplinary actions that could result in the loss of their professional licenses. If you stand to lose your professional license for any reason, a Cleveland area professional licensure attorney can help.
