Pennsylvania Observes August as Child Support Awareness Month

By Sheryl Rentz on August 22, 2012

As reported by U.S. Politics Today, August is Child Support Enforcement Awareness Month in Pennsylvania, and the state’s Child Support program continues to exceed federal standards designed to ensure children get the financial support they need. The Department of Public Welfare’s Bureau of Child Support Enforcement administers child support collection and enforcement efforts through “cooperative agreements with the 67 county Courts of Common Pleas’ Domestic Relations Sections.” Per federal rules, five measures must be successfully met, including collecting current and overdue child support and being cost-effective in the administration of child support collection.

From 2010 through 2011, Pennsylvania disbursed $1.55 billion in child support collections to custodial parents. The State Secretary notes that through the committed efforts of welfare department employees and county court workers, custodial parents are receiving the child support they need so their children can live in a more secure environment.

The Philadelphia Family Court’s Child Support Enforcement program provides a variety of services to help families in PA obtain the financial support they deserves, such as parent locate, paternity establishment, court order enforcement, and support order establishment. For more information on how these programs can help you and your family, visit the Department of Public Welfare’s website or call (215) 686-7466. As children are our national treasure, they undeniably need love as well as financial support to ensure they have the happy childhood they deserve.

For some parents, receiving the child support they need for their children can be difficult, and professional legal assistance may be necessary to get the financial support you deserve. Pennsylvania child support lawyer Sheryl R. Rentz is committed to preserving the rights of PA parents and will work diligently to ensure you receive the money you need for your family. Please call (866) 290-9292 for a complimentary consultation.
