Most parents want nothing but the best for their children. This is the case even when two parents aren't in a relationship with one another. One way to ensure children have their needs met is for one parent to make child support payments to the other. However, if that paying parent is out of work or underemployed here in New Jersey, making those payments can be difficult. One out-of-state county took matters into its own hands by hosting a job fair specifically for people making child support payments.
The county has held several of this kind of job fair throughout the year. Representatives said they wanted to empower people to take care of their children. Those who had court-ordered child support payments to make were eligible to attend. Many different companies attended, from a range of industries, and the event was held at the local courthouse.
The coordinator said she hoped the event would instill confidence in the attendees, particularly if their employment history has had any instability. The convenience of being able to interact with several potential employers in one location at the same time is helpful for attendees as well. If people who make child support payments have been struggling, the job fair can give them a direction to take.
Those here in New Jersey who have difficulty making or collecting their child support payments don't have to wait for a job fair to improve their lives. A family law attorney can assist parents with creating a new child support agreement or modifying an existing one. The bottom line is that children need proper care and there are ways to ensure that occurs.
