Child Support When You're Afraid of the Other Parent

Guide for Domestic Violence Advocates and Survivors

Published: October 21, 2019

This guide helps survivors of domestic violence make fully informed decisions about safety and child support services. Child support processes and safety modifications vary by state. The guide provides a sequence of questions that survivors or domestic violence advocates can ask to learn about safety measures available in their state. It also explains why it’s important for child support workers to discuss local safety measures with all recipients of child support services.

This guide was developed in collaboration with the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges.
