Better Relationships with Children Ups Child Support Collections

Emily DeVoe at WECT.Com describes the success of a program in New Hanover County, North Carolina, called Partnership for Fatherhood.

“We found out that a lot of fathers weren’t paying their child support–they didn’t have a relationship with their children–and so we said, ‘If they have a relationship with their children, maybe then they will pay their child support because they will have a relationship and be committed to their child,'” Angelina Bernard of the Department of Social Services said.

One of the program’s goals is to build better relationships between fathers and their children.  It also provides employment and educational services to non-custodial parents.  Child support payments have increased by 34 percent since the program started in June of 2013.

  1. Illinois Paternity Lawyewr Says:

    Indeed, when the ex sees that the father is good with the kids, even post divorce, they are much more willing to let that relationship keep going.

    And like you said, the child support is better when that relationship is better too. You would want to give a good living to the child that you enjoy having and being around.
