OVERVIEW | CHILD SUPPORT AND FAMILY LAW

States play a critical role in establishing effective child support programs that address the needs of the whole family and encourage compliance with child support orders. States are developing policies to prevent the need for child support enforcement, engage fathers from the birth of their child, promote family economic stability, help build healthy family relationships, ensure that families have meaningful health care coverage and prevent and reduce family violence. NCSL provides policy and research analysis of legislative trends and innovative programs as well as other assistance, such as educational presentations for legislators, staff and other state leaders, testimony before legislative committees, and roundtable discussions on these and a range of child support and family law topics.
