WHAT: The Shelby County Child Support Office is launching a week-long effort to bring in thousands of overdue child support dollars. The “Help Us Help You” program will target hundreds of parents—both mothers and fathers—who are facing jail time for their failure to pay court-ordered support. Every week, judges issue dozens of warrants for a parents’ arrest because they’ve failed to pay child support. During the second week of May, those parents will have the chance to discharge outstanding warrants, IF they come in and make a good faith payment and work with the court and child support office to pay their support. Parents who have had their driver’s license revoked for failure to pay child support will also have a chance to have their driver’s license reinstated.
WHEN: Monday, June 14 – June, May 18
