Child Support Awareness Month Activities

Father and son

EXTENDED: Child Support Amnesty 2017
August 21 - September 15

OAG’s Child Support Services Division (CSSD) is launching an Amnesty program for parents who have fallen behind in their child-support payments to help them get back on track.

CSSD experts will work collaboratively with parents who volunteer to be part of the program to help them better manage their obligations. If non-custodial parents make good-faith efforts to make payments on outstanding child support debt during this period, they may be eligible for certain benefits, which include:

  • Letters confirming child support compliance that could help quash an arrest warrant or return a revoked license related to failure to pay;
  • Dollar-for-dollar matching grants for back payments that non-custodial parents owe to the District under the TANF (Temporary Assistance to Needy Families) program.

The amnesty program will run from August 21 through September 15, 2017. Parents who wish to participate can visit the CSSD office at 441 4th Street NW, Suite 550 North from 8:45 a.m. -3:45 p.m. There, they can work with case managers to make payments on their cases and develop plans for getting on the right track to meeting their obligations.
