What Practitioners Need to Know About the New Federal Child Support Regulation
Date: 
01/13/2017 - 2:30pm to 5:00pm

Webinarf

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.
