SENATE PASSES BILL CREATING "DEADBEAT PARENTS MOST WANTED LIST"

Date: 05/30/2013 18:34

The New York State Senate today passed legislation that creates a "deadbeat parents most wanted list" of financially-delinquent parents who are substantially late or behind on child support payments.

The bill (

S.4114), sponsored by Senator Martin Golden (R-C-I, Brooklyn), is intended

to locate parents who owe more than $10,000 in child support payments.

 

 

       "Money is owed to children and families throughout New York City and

State because parents are not holding true to their commitment of child

support," said Senator Golden. "The dollar figure is alarming and that it

why we must increase our efforts to ensure timely and satisfactory

collection. The collection of child support payments has escalated to the

point where we must ask for the public's help in notifying us as to where

the deadbeat parents are. And furthermore, the fear of public humiliation

may also encourage individuals to stop shortchanging their children."

 

 

      Statistics show that in 2009, more than $648 million that was owed to

New York's children went uncollected, including $317 million owed to New

York City children.

 

                The legislation would require the Office of Temporary and

Disability Assistance (OTDA) to compile, disclose and publish a "deadbeats

most wanted list" of individuals who are late or behind in their child

support obligations under a court administrative order. Before posting, the

OTDA will attempt to notify the individual about the potential posting and

provide him or her the opportunity to either pay the child support, or

agree with the child support collection agency to make payments.

 

      The list would include the individual's name, physical description,

last known address and photograph, if available, and will be posted on the

OTDA website and made available to local child support collection units. An

individual's information would be removed from the list upon payment of the

balance of child support owed, making three consecutive payments, or

providing court documentation that they are not responsible for the

payments.

 

 

      The bill has been sent to the Assembly.
