On Thursday, November 19, a panel that includes officials from DOR and Probate Family Court will discuss how child support can help single parents and their children financially. Since child support is essential to the wellbeing of kids, DOR’s mission is to enforce the financial responsibilities of parenthood.

Child Support Enforcement is here to help. The panel will help explain the child support process, beginning with how single parents can receive a child support order and how they can successfully apply for child support services.

Here are a few of the services DOR will provide, once a parent has received a child support order and filled out the child support intake form:

  • Locate parents
  • Establish paternity
  • Establish a child support and medical support orders
  • Enforce child support and medical support orders
  • Collect and distribute payments
  • Monitor payments
  • Collect past-due child support

Although court appearances and the child support process can be stressful at first, panel speakers will be on hand to answer questions from the public and direct parents to additional help and resources, if need be.

The panel will feature several experts in the field of child support, including Justices Angela Ordoñez and Robert A. Scandurra of Probate and Family Court and Carrie Woods, Esq., family law practitioner from the law firm of Strumski and Woods, Barnstable.

“We’re here to provide help and services,” said DOR’s Patrick Finn, who will be on Thursday’s panel. “If parents have any questions, they can ask us directly or anyone at a DOR office or family courthouse. There’s more helpful information on DOR’s and Probate Court’s websites as well.”

The panel will be held this Thursday from 5:30pm to 7pm. This will be a great opportunity to meet with others in the Barnstable community and receive answers to your questions.

The free event is open to the public. So come join us at Cape Cod Community College, 2240 Iyannough Road, West Barnstable, MA 02668.

DOR cares!
