Child support programs work with our partners to help parents who are incarcerated or returning to their communities. Fundamental fairness and access to justice are critical to effective child support enforcement. Child support is a legal obligation. When child support procedures are clear, realistic, and fair, parents are more likely to make reliable support payments that their children can count on.
If you would like to do more to help incarcerated parents with their child support, contact your local correctional institutions, including jails and state or federal prisons.
