Connecticut Child Support Information

We regret to inform you that we are unable to work your case. The law of the land in Connecticut can be referred to as the Deadbeat Protection Act and represents one of the most egregious state laws protecting deadbeat parents.

The state of Connecticut requires Private Child Support Enforcement Agencies to follow the guidelines of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), which limits the number of times a person can be contacted about their child support matters as well as who we can speak to about the situation. The state of Connecticut has placed the value of enforcing a child support order no higher than that of trying to collect on a refrigerator bill.

Due to these requirements it becomes ineffective for private enforcement agencies to work cases from this state. The state also puts a cap on the amount of commission that can be taken and have now included a special licensing and regulations by the Banking Department in the state. It is unfortunate that the state believes they know better than you how to enforce your child support order.

THE STATE OF CONNECTICUT TOOK AWAY THE RIGHTS OF ITS CITIZENS TO USE OTHER OPTIONS IN ORDER TO ENFORCE A CHILD SUPPORT ORDER EFFECTIVELY.

42% of Connecticut families do not receive their current child support. Only 5% of a total of $1,589,423,758.001 of arrearages owed in Connecticut was collected by the CT CSE

THE NUMBERS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES!

If you believe this is wrong and citizens' rights and opportunities should not be affected, write your state Senator or local Representative and request they review their policies.
