RE: New collaborative planning guide for child support and the judiciary

Dear Colleague:

I am pleased to provide the attached Judicial-Child Support Collaborative Planning Guide for Leading Change, a work product of the National Judicial-Child Support Task Force. The Task Force is a group of professionals representing State and Tribal child support enforcement agencies, State courts, State court administrators, national court and judicial associations, and the Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement.

An overriding goal of the Task Force is to promote and enhance child support program-judicial collaboration in order to better fulfill our commitment to children and families. This Planning Guide is intended to provide ideas for child support program-judicial collaboration efforts, a framework for getting started and practical input from a variety of jurisdictions and projects already underway.

I hope you will find the Planning Guide useful as you launch your own collaborations.

For additional information on the Task Force or this Guide, please contact Judge Larry Holtz at larry.holtz@acf.hhs.gov or (202) 401-5376.

Sincerely,

Margot Bean
Commissioner
Office of Child Support Enforcement
