Child Support Administrators Make Progress On Reforms

Within the past few months, the Department of Human Resources has made significant progress in resolving the issues raised by the Office of Legislative Audits concerning their Child Support Enforcement Administration.

The department has corrected seven of the 11 mistakes discovered by auditors during their evaluation of the child support system, and it is expected to remedy the final four problems by the end of April, according to the Office of Legislative Audits. The office released a 2011 report revealing that state authorities were not using all of the enforcement tools at their disposal to get parents to pay child support.

Now, however, the department has become more aggressive about collecting child support, and it has increased child support collections to a record high.
