Responsible Parent Project

Mr. S

Mr. S. came to RILS in January 2013. He was in jeopardy of incarceration due to his failure to pay his child support as ordered by the Family Court. For many years he with substance abuse issues entering various treatment programs over several years. His ongoing struggles caused him to miss court dates and to have bench warrants issued for him.

With representation from the Responsible Parent Project staff, he presented evidence of his dates of hospitalizations we were able to have his body attachments vacated and avoiding jail time.

Mr. S. has now been successful in addressing his issues, has obtained gainful employment and has paid down the amount of back child support that he owes in this case. His weekly payment has been reduced to an amount he can pay on a regular basis and the motions pending against him have been passed.
