Custodial Parent Collects $11,000 in Arrears through the Services of the Custodial Support Foundation and Bounty Alert, While the Noncustodial Parent is Arrested.

Collection services will continue to seize and liquidate the noncustodial parent's assets!  

For: Immediate Release
Another Custodial Parent Can Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

The Custodial Support Foundation and Bounty Alert team up to form Project Child Support.
Last year, single mother Ms. E.J. of Newark, New Jersey received a Child Support Enforcement Order to collect the child support, in addition to spousal arrears owed to her and her daughter.  Struggling to barely pay her bills on a single income, she invested all of her savings in legal fees to obtain the Enforcement Order at the advice of her previous attorney. The original Motion prepared and filed by her previous attorney to obtain the Enforcement Order, did not include provisions for collection fees.  The collection fees would have enabled a collection agency to be paid to collect her arrears, without taking any portion of her arrears as payment, since the Office of Child Support Enforcement was unable to locate the noncustodial parent.  The Motion did not include any provisions to have an arrest warrant issued if the noncustodial parent failed to comply with the payment terms of the Enforcement Order, even though the noncustodial parent had never made a payment in eight (8) years.  The Motion did include $14,302 in additional legal fees, which E.J. paid even though she was unable to collect any arrears or legal fees. 
"The initial Enforcement Order she was granted, is the typical Order granted to many custodial parents, which do not prevent noncustodial parents from taking advantage of the collection loopholes within them", says Founder Kai Patterson.  The noncustodial parent of E.J.'s child fled the State of New Jersey, as well as started his own business to avoid paying child and spousal support ordered by the court.  Leaving the a state to avoid paying child support is a federal crime under the Child Support Recovery Act of 1992.  The original Child Support Enforcement Order granted in 2011 by the Essex County Judge to E.J. was in the amount $121,935.  The noncustodial parent did not attend the court appearance to contest the original Enforcement Order obtained through E.J.'s previous attorney.  E.J. was later referred to the Custodial Support Foundation to assist in the collection of her arrears, by her brother who hosted a child support workshop in Irvington, New Jersey for the organization.
New Enforcement Order  
Upon enrolling into Project Child Support's Collection Program, an investigation was conducted to determine the location and assets of the noncustodial parent.  "We were able to acquire a sponsor to pay the nominal subscription fee of $60 per month, because she was facing an eviction and needed financial assistance". "There is no way I was going to make the custodial parent pay for the cost of our services after her brother hosted a child support workshop for our Foundation".  "The investigative reports we obtain on noncustodial parents, enable us to locate and liquidate their assets to pay all support arrears, as well as all fees" said Patterson. 

"The investigative reports we obtain on noncustodial parents, enable us to locate and liquidate their assets to pay all support arrears, as well as all fees" said Patterson.  In the Motion that was prepared for the new Enforcement Order, the Foundation's attorney requested all fees be paid by the noncustodial parent, and added a 10% collection agency fee.  "The collection agency fee enables the custodial parent to receive all of her arrears, and the collection services of our collection agency, at no additional cost", said Patterson.  The Motion also requested an arrest warrant be issued against the noncustodial parent, if all fees were not paid within two (2) weeks of the Enforcement Order being granted by the court.  The Judge agreed with the requests and granted the Enforcement Order. 
The Motion also requested $3,500 in apprehension fees to contract a fugitive recovery agent ("Bounty Hunter"), to arrest the noncustodial parent and extradite him to New Jersey, only if an arrest warrant was issued.  The arrest warrant together with fugitive recovery fees, enables noncustodial parents to be apprehended in any state and most U.S. territories.  Once the noncustodial parent had been located, and read a copy of the motion he was served, he realized he could no longer take advantage of the loopholes in the child support collection process.  "Since Bounty Alert has contracts with forty three (43) fugitive recovery agencies to hunt down and apprehend noncustodial parents, Project Child Support gives Judges the ability to arrest noncustodial parents in other states who fail to pay their arrears", said Patterson.  After receiving a copy of the Motion filed with the Superior Court of New Jersey, the noncustodial parent immediately retained an attorney, who appeared with him to argue against the Motion. 
At the hearing, the Judge immediately arrested the noncustodial parent without waiting two weeks as requested in the Enforcement Order.  The noncustodial parent was placed in holding at the Essex County Jail in Kearney, New Jersey.  The Enforcement Order was granted and $11,000 was immediately seized and paid towards E.J.'s arrears.  Steps are now being taken to seize the noncustodial parents’ assets should he not pay the remaining arrears by December 6, 2012, which is the date he is required to reappear before an Essex County Judge.  E.J. is one of several custodial parents who have enrolled into Project Child Support's Collection Program.  The Custodial Support Foundation provides legal and educational services, and Bounty Alert provides investigative, collection and apprehension services for parents with child support problems.  Bounty Alert also creates profiles and disseminates alerts of fugitives with warrants.
