Turner v. Rogers Anniversary Forum, June 20, 2012, 2:00–3:30 p.m. ET

Fundamental Fairness and the Ability to Pay in Child Support Proceedings

Please join a panel of experts on June 20 at 2:00 p.m. ET for a discussion of the critical messages from Turner v. Rogers and its implications for child support. Turner v. Rogers requires states in civil contempt proceedings to provide procedures that ensure a fundamentally fair determination of whether an unrepresented parent is able to comply with a court order to pay child support. 

This forum will include a discussion of:

  • setting realistic child support orders, and other promising practices that avoid the build-up of arrears
  • cost-effective strategies for child support compliance, including alternatives to contempt
  • expanding self-help services and access to justice for unrepresented litigants

This forum is sponsored by OCSE and the Department of Justice’s Access to Justice Initiative.  Register for the webcast or limited seating in the HHS Auditorium, 200 Independence Avenue, S.W., Washington, DC.
