Another significant barrier that formerly incarcerated parents face in their transition to the world outside of prison is the accrual of child support arrears while in prison. Child support is a crucial component of any effort to strengthen low-income families. It is also a critical concern for formerly incarcerated parents struggling to obtain employment, rebuild family ties, and reintegrate into New York communities.

This folder contains extensive resources on child support issues, including modification of child support orders, coping with arrests, and defending against unreasonable enforcement tools. Special attention should be paid to the NY Family Court Forms - All Child Support Forms (NYS Office of Court Administration) located under Forms & Tools which contains official forms from the NY Family Court for Child Support-related proceedings.
