Child Support Payments

Making and Receiving Child Support Payments becomes simpler with a variety of options designed to fit the circumstances of each family.

Financial Coaching

Because we know the transition to paying and receiving child support has an impact on personal budgets, we now offer Financial Coaching to case participants who want to gain control over their finances.  A team of case managers who are trained in financial coaching are available to help you through the process of reaching financial freedom.  

A judgment free setting is available where you can work through the process of figuring out where your money goes and how to make sure more of it is spent on the important things.

If you are interested in setting up an appointment to find out more about Financial Coaching, let us know.
