African American Juvenile Justice Project Supports Child Support Reform


African American Juvenile Justice Projects Teams Up With Georgia Justice Project and Mark Rogers on Child Support Reform

The African American Juvenile Justice Project teams up with Georgia Justice Project and Mark Rogers on Child Support Reform to discuss the impact of child support obligation upon the Georgians.

The program “Accountability, Affordability and Availability” outlines the criminalization and victimization of child support obligation that often leads to contempt of court and loss of educational and employment opportunities.

The town hall meetings were conducted throughout Georgia with an emphasis upon changing the way Georgia calculates child support to include a Self-Support Reserve provision that would calculate the non-custodian parent cost of living against their child support obligation.

This achievement would permit parents to pay child support based upon available funds and ensure regular monthly payments. This will also keep parents working together to provide for their children.
