Child Support

Enforcement | Establishment

For child support establishment and enforcement caseworkers, obtaining complete information regarding non-custodial parents and establishing paternity can take a great deal of time, and requires accurate and timely documentation.

Growing caseloads increase the level of difficulty for workers, especially when you consider the sheer volume of communication and information-sharing they do with parents, courts, attorneys, and other third parties — for every case in their queue.

Unfortunately, most caseworkers lose valuable time every day to the antiquated documentation systems and manual processes they are forced to use to collect, retrieve, and share information, making it impossible to be truly efficient and effective.
