Child support procedures that are accessible and easy to use help assure a fair and just process and lead to better child support outcomes, especially for parents without lawyers.  This PAID fact sheet profiles several child support access to justice innovations, including court facilitators, self-help hotlines and centers, and online tools  that facilitate active, informed participation by parents.
