Military & Veterans

Promotional image

We thank veterans for their service, and recognize that military and veteran parents face unique challenges because of deployments or other experiences. Managing child support debt and barriers to payment can weigh heavily on military members. Homeless and at-risk veterans also face similar struggles. Helping parents in uniform get informed is good for everyone – and it advances the child support program’s goal of ensuring America’s children have the support they need.
