Project Child Support Launches A New Service To Fix A Huge Flaw In The Child Support System That Destroys Noncustodial Parents’ Credit

Breaking News:  A Flaw in the Child Support System Destroys the Credit of Noncustodial Parents is Identified in this Release   

New York, New York – When noncustodial parents’ income circumstances change to warrant a reduction of their child support obligations, in accordance with their state’s child support payment guidelines, they must obtain new child support orders, which can take months. 

The Problem

Before most judges will grant what is known as a “downward modification”, which is a reduced child support payment obligation, noncustodial parents are required to provide several paystubs that show their earnings have been significantly reduced.  If a noncustodial parent is unemployed at the time they attempt to obtain a downward modification, their requests are denied in most cases and they are required to demonstrate to the court they are unable to obtain a job that generates earnings equivalent to the job they lost.  Once noncustodial parents are able to demonstrate to the court they are eligible for a downward modification, they have accumulated considerable arrears.  If noncustodial parents have not accumulated arrears, even if their circumstances warrant a downward modification, they may be denied because they have proven they can maintain their current child support obligation.  Once noncustodial parents accumulate child support arrears, the Office of Child Support Enforcement reports their delinquent payment history to all three credit bureaus.  To make matters worse, Supreme Court laws like Lepis v. Lepis, and requiring 18 months before granting modifications, prevent noncustodial parents from receiving downward modifications until their new circumstances are deemed to be permanent, thus healthy credit profiles are destroyed.  Many judges, who issue court orders granting downward modifications, include provisions that enable noncustodial parents to pay their arrears over time, but no provisions are provided to repair a noncustodial parent’s credit destroyed by the child support system.

The Real Questions

Individuals who have poor credit profiles are denied loans, employment, automobiles, mortgages, and denied the ability to simply rent an apartment.  Derogatory child support information, and child support judgments on noncustodial parents’ credit profiles, immediately label them as “deadbeat parents” who don’t take care of their children.  How do millions of noncustodial parents, who have derogatory child support information or child support judgments on their credit profiles, convince employers they are not irresponsible deadbeats who neglect their children?  What happens when that employer, loan officer, auto finance manager, or rental office manager happens to be a single custodial parent?  Although we all know the answer to this question, the real question is how does a noncustodial parent prevent or fix this problem?  Are we helping noncustodial parents pay their child support arrears if we damage their ability to obtain employment, promotions, etc.?

The Solution: Project Child Support Teams Up with Kredit Koncepts

Until laws are passed that require derogatory child support information and judgments provided to credit bureaus be removed when a noncustodial parent’s circumstances warrant a downward modification, noncustodial parents must seek private legal and credit restoration services.  Once a noncustodial parent obtains a new court order that modifies an order associated with any derogatory child support information or child support judgment on their credit report, Project Child Support will provide services to enable Kredit Koncepts to have the information removed.  Kredit Koncetps is a full service credit restoration company that provides services to remove erroneous and derogatory credit information from their customer’s three credit bureaus.  The new program will be called the “Amnesty Program with Credit Restoration Services”.  In addition to providing services to assist noncustodial parents in obtaining court orders to restructure their child support obligations and arrears, the Project Child Support initiative provides the following services through its Amnesty Program:

- Noncustodial parents are provided with employment agencies to help them obtain employment and to confirm they are seeking employment

- Noncustodial parents receive letters for prospective employers that explain the circumstances relating to their arrears, to increase their chances of obtaining employment

- Noncustodial parents receive credit analysis and service to remove derogatory information that warrants removal, including any errors  

- Once noncustodial parents receive a new court order, they will receive the credit restoration services at no additional cost to remove their derogatory child support information from their credit profile

To support the demand the Amnesty Program with Credit Restoration Service will generate, Project Child Support is gearing up to support an average of 400 noncustodial parent accounts per month from Kredit Koncepts.  Project Child Support will receive accounts from Kredit Koncepts that need the services of the Amnesty Program, and Kredit Koncepts will receive accounts from Project Child Support who need credit restoration services.  “When seeking a court order for a downward modification or for the restructure of arrears, noncustodial parents also need investigative services to confirm they do not have any additional revenue streams they are hiding.  The also need legal services to obtain a court order to structure the payment of their arrears, and stop enforcement actions.  The restoration of driver’s licenses, the discharge of arrest warrants, and the discharges of levies are the type of enforcement actions the Amnesty Program can provide.  Since we know how to assist custodial parents in collecting their arrears though our Collection Program, we know how to help noncustodial parents and understand the flaws within the system.  When the laws and procedures were created to require noncustodial parents to wait months before granting them downward modifications, it was not taken into consideration the damages they would incur.  Our new program was created to repair those damages” says Kai D. Patterson, Founder of Project Child Support. 

Kai D. Patterson created Project Child Support in honor of his mother, who was unable to collect child support from Mr. Patterson’s father, which provides affordable and free services to parents (See: Patterson’s Story).  The program provides a 24-hour call center to enable custodial and noncustodial parents to schedule consultations and receive assistance by calling 855-851-HELP (4357).

Project Child Support Releases Documents Related to the Unpaid Child Support and Arrest of “Love & Hip Hop” Star Steven J

Exclusive Release

Breaking News: Mona Scott, Whose Firm Produces ‘Love & Hip Hop’ States in a Court Subpoena that Stevie J Does Not Do Any Business With Her Firm

Did Mona Scott Lie in a Court Ordered Subpoena to Help Stevie J Continue to Evade Paying Child Support?

New York, New York – On October 28, 2013, Project Child Support issued a press release that disclosed the Grammy Award Winning Music Producer and “Love & Hip Hop Star”, Stevie J owed over $1 million dollars in unpaid child support to Carol Antoinette Bennett.  Project Child Support’s attorneys, aided by Bounty Alert, Inc., filed a petition to enforce the payment of Mr. Jordan’s arrears in the New York Family Court, which led to an order being granted to subpoena any third party company doing business with Stevie J to determine his income and revenue sources.  The petition filed to enforce the payment of the arrears also enabled Project Child Support to seek a court order to seize the assets of Mr. Jordan from all of his revenue sources, to pay his unpaid child support and fees.  Included in the subpoena response, Mona Scott represented that her entertainment company “Monami Entertainment” did not do any business with Steven J (See: Mona Scott’s Subpoena Response).  It was reported yesterday that Mona Scott posted $25,000 for Stevie J's bail, but the real question is did she lie in a court ordered subpoena to help Stevie J continue to evade paying child support?  “I don’t understand how an Executive Producer of a hit television reality series does not enter into any agreements with the cast or any organizations contracted with the cast of a television production.  This is a felony child support evasion case, and helping someone commit a felony crime is a felony crime.  We are going cooperate with the federal agencies investigating this case and provide them with copies of all documents we received that are related to this case, including Mona Scott’s court ordered subpoena response” says Kai Patterson, who is the Founder of Project Child Support.

In response to the subpoenas, Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J failed to accept or respond to the documents (See: Failed Acceptances).  Mr. Jordan’s and Ms. Hernandez’s failure to accept or respond to the subpoenas demonstrates is a violation of the court order subpoena, since they were sent to their correct address.  Their failure to accept or respond to the court ordered subpoenas will not help Stevie J in the federal trial that will be forthcoming.  “Because Stevie J is a celebrity of a hit reality series and has the ability to command enormous media attention, his actions are an example to noncustodial parents throughout the world.  His child support order was issued consistently with any order issued for a noncustodial parent who is not a celebrity.  If he is allowed to not take care of his children without any enforcement actions, it will set a bad example for noncustodial parents throughout the world, and make a mockery of our child support system in the United States of America to the rest of the world.  Stevie J’s children have lost 14 and 16 years of opportunities their child support would have enabled, which they can never turn back the calendar to receive” says Patterson.  

When Project Child Support undertook the case on May 29, 2013, the initial documents Carol Antoinette Bennett received from the New York City Office of Child Support Enforcement stated that Mr. Jordan’s total past due support obligation owed equaled “$0.00”, although she was owed over $1 million dollars (See: Initial Statement of Arrears).  Perhaps it was the initial statement that caused two prior arrest warrants issued against Mr. Jordan to be dismissed.  After requesting a detailed report of the arrears, the subsequent statement issued disclosed that Mr. Jordan’s delinquent unpaid child support equaled $1,026,622.84 (See Page 2: Subsequent Statement of Arrears). After filing the petition to enforce the payment of Mr. Jordan’s unpaid child support, Project Child Support’s attorneys confirmed with a caseworker from the Office of Child Support Enforcement a federal investigation was being conducted.  To ensure Project Child Support did not compromise the federal investigation, no statements or documents were released to the public that disclosed a federal investigation was being conducted.  “It presented a bit of a challenge not to disclose the federal investigation, because we wanted Mr. Jordan and his attorney to realize the seriousness of this case.  In February 2014, rather than take even the smallest step to resolve his unpaid child support, Mr. Jordan opened “Sleazy and Zino Bistro”, while failing to make a single payment towards his arrears,” says Patterson.  Last year, Robert Sand, who was dubbed Americas #1 Deadbeat, was sentenced to more than 2½ years for owing $1 million dollars in unpaid child support.  The FBI traveled to the Philippines to apprehend him under the felony child support evasion statures.  Coincidently, both the Robert Sand and Stevie J are federal cases in the State of New York for the nonpayment of child support in excess of $1 million dollars. 

When a noncustodial parent fails to pay child support and the arrears increase to considerable levels, such as in the case of Stevie J’s arrears, felony child support evasion charges can be imposed.  The Office of Inspector General, OIG, may intervene in child support cases when: the noncustodial parent willfully fails to pay child support for more than 1 year and the State where the child lives is different from the State where the noncustodial parent lives, the amount the noncustodial parent owes is more than $5,000 and the State where the child lives is different from the State where the noncustodial parent lives, or the noncustodial parent travels to another State or country to avoid paying child support.  Punishment for a first offense for failure to pay child support is a fine, up to 6 months in prison, or both. In the case of a second or subsequent offense or a case when the obligation has been unpaid for longer than 2 years or is more than $10,000, the punishment increases to a fine of up to $250,000, 2 years in prison, or both. Noncustodial parents convicted of these offenses must also pay restitution and/or settlements of the child support amount owed (See: Federal Child Support Laws & Video).

Project Child Support is an initiative that was created to reduce the more than $100 billion dollars unpaid child support, of which 49 cents of every dollar is absorbed by taxpayers, according to the Department of Health and Human Services (See: Article).  The initiative provides custodial parents and noncustodial parents with services to assist them in collecting and paying their unpaid child support.  The initiative provides investigative services to determine a noncustodial parent’s locations, income and assets, as well as collection services with the aid of Bounty Alert, Inc. (See: Website).  Legal services provided by the attorneys of the initiative include obtaining court orders to enforce the payment of unpaid child support to assist custodial parents, obtaining consent orders that are agreed upon by both parents, or obtaining court orders to terminate enforcement actions against noncustodial parents.  Project Child Support specializes in those cases whose circumstances meet the federal evasion guidelines, specifically when custodial parents are owed $20,000 or more in arrears.  The program also provides services to obtain enforcement orders to enable fugitive recovery agents (bounty hunters), to apprehend noncustodial parents with child support warrants, which relieves states the burden of incurring apprehension costs.  Kai D. Patterson created Project Child Support in honor of his mother, who was unable to collect child support from Mr. Patterson’s father, which provides affordable and free services to parents (See: Patterson’s Story).  The program provides a 24-hour call center to enable custodial and noncustodial parents to schedule consultations and received assistance.
