Child Support Collection Unit making a difference

When it comes to making child support payments, most people realize how important it is to do the right thing. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. There are people out there, from one side of the country to the next, who attempt to dodge their monthly responsibility. In the end, they are only harming themselves, as well as their child.

Our Virginia readers are likely familiar with how important it is for local child support collection units to do their job. These units, located in counties throughout the country, are devoted to helping children lead a better life by collecting the money that is due to them.

In Florence, Alabama, the Lauderdale County district attorney's Child Support Collection Unit is making major strides. According to the district attorney, the unit pulled in approximately $5 million for child support during fiscal year 2013. He also noted that this was the most money ever collected by the unit, thanks to more than 3,700 clients.

When compared to other counties with similar caseloads, it is easy to see that this unit is pulling its weight and making a positive impact on the children in the area who are in need of this money.

The unit puts a lot of time into working with parents who are behind in making child support payments. They help these people catch up on back payments, while also staying on top of them to ensure that they don't fall behind again in the future. No matter what it takes to get these people to pay child support, this unit is willing to take those steps.

Like many child support collection units throughout the United States, the one in Lauderdale County, Alabama is doing big things. This goes a long way in helping the many children who rely on child support payments to lead a better life.

Attorneys can help those who are seeking back child support payments learn more about their rights and options. There is help available.
