what is child support intervention?

child_support_personQ) what is child support intervention?

A) According to an online article by PAMELA C. OVWIGHO, PH.D. – “In an effort to reduce the growth of child support arrears balances and boost current support collections, the Office of Child Support Enforcement (U.S. Office of Child Support Enforcement, 2005) recommends the adoption of “early intervention” strategies. The goal of early intervention is to engage non-custodial parents in the child support process and develop a relationship with them. Depending on the particular strategies used, the hope is that the number of child support orders entered by default will be reduced, that the orders established will be based on more accurate information about parents’ resources, and that parents will be more likely to pay their child support obligations in full and on time. By definition, early intervention strategies should occur early in the life of an order, before debt has accumulated. They contrast markedly with typical child support enforcement measures that do not occur until the account is several months – and hundreds or thousands of dollars – past  due.” Read More http://www.familywelfare.umaryland.edu/reports1/earlyintervention.pdf

  1. I have been trying to enforce for over a year. It has been over 9 months since our divorce which was pro se and signed by a judge. GWINNETT received a copy of the divorce And A notorized copy of all money that the NCP had paid up to the time they decided to enforce…..over and when they finally got the case set up they do not request ANY arrears and when the NCP ask what he owes they do not tell him and he wants to pay it but they say I cannot accept payment and if he pays arrears through them than it would appear that he is grossly ahead like 3 months instead of behind 3 months. No one seems to know what is going on and I only reached out to child support Recovery because I thought they would help but they HAVE NOT been very helpful and the child is the one that suffers.
