Child Support Enforcement-Led Employment Services for Noncustodial Parents

This report examines the issues relative to providing employment services for noncustodial parents (NCP) through the child support program (CSE). The report acknowledges the link between employed NCPs and the ability of the CSE program to income withhold, the most effective tool for collecting child support payments. The report reviews the establishment of eligibility for the employment programs and recruitment methods, services that could be provided to NCPs, possible funding streams, the available evidence on the effectiveness of these programs, and several recent proposals for funding.
