If you are a child support agency interested in implementing or enhancing a noncustodial parent employment program, OCSE can help.
We believe the option to implement noncustodial parent employment services is a good strategy to increase participation in the workforce, improve compliance with court-ordered child support payments, and provide low-income Americans with a path out of poverty to financial self-sufficiency.
The Knowledge Works! initiative highlights successful programs in other jurisdictions. We also provide documents and access to OCSE subject matter experts to support your program in these areas:
