New Directions in Child Support
New Directions in Child Support is a limited and specialized, federally funded program that seeks to increase compliance and consistency of child support payments.
At this time parents are randomly selected to be participants of New Directions. Parents cannot ask to be added to the program nor removed.
Case Managers work to provide solutions to barriers including employment, parenting time, monthly support, arrears, and transportation in order for parents to become successful. Although, participants of the program are eligible for court at the time of entry into the program, we work with parents to find other ways to encourage compliance before using that option. Our goal is to include increased communication combined with clear case plans to find solutions that work for the whole family.
If you would like additional support, but are not selected to participate in New Directions, be sure to check out other programs such as The Journey and Families Forward!
