Project to Avoid Increasing Delinquencies (PAID)

This initiative is a part of the federal Project to Avoid Increasing Delinquencies (PAID) and its goal is to increase child support collections and prevent arrears by reaching out to noncustodial parents (NCP’s) early on in the child support process.

Educate NCPs about the child support process, how to make child support payments, and to provide them with resources which would enable them to be able to be self-sufficient and to make their child support payments.

CSSD Introductory Letter

When a child support case is first opened in D.C. Superior Court, the Locate unit

contacts the NCP in writing. The Locate Specialists attach the “CSSD

Introductory Letter,” to the Petition to Establish Paternity and/or Support and the

Notice of Hearing and Order Directing Appearance (“NOHODA”).

slide12

Incarcerated Parents and Returning Citizens

In 2005, the District of Columbia enacted a law entitled “Notice at Sentencing of Child Support Modification”. The law also provides assistance to the non-custodial parents once they are released from prison.

Changes in DC Child Support Laws to help Incarcerated Parents and Ex-offendersThe revised DC Child Support Guideline, which became effective in 2006, requires CSSD to review a child support case if CSSD receives notice that the NCP is incarcerated. If CSSD finds that the NCP’s imprisonment results in a change in financial circumstances, CSSD can file a motion with the Court to reduce or suspend the NCP’s support order.  The Court will then modify the order using the Guideline.The DC child support laws have also been updated to allow for motions that are filed at the time of sentencing to be addressed after the NCP has been released from prison.
