New Jersey child support amnesty for parents in arrears

Beginning April 28, individuals in New Jersey who are behind on child support payments may be able to take advantage of a weeklong amnesty being offered by the state. To qualify, parents must have a warrant out for their arrest because child support is in arrears. Even if adequate arrangements cannot be made during amnesty week, indebted parents have no fear of being arrested while trying to make such arrangements. The state has offered child support amnesty before, but cautions that this is not a regular event. The prior amnesty took place in 2004. Parents must still make every effort to stay current on child support payments or acquire a modification to their child support agreement.

Agreements on parenting time need to be reached, visitation rights need to be discussed, and child support needs to be determined. New Jersey law aims to resolve these matters fairly and in a manner that most benefits the child.
