Child Support

Enforcement | Establishment | Paternity | Location | Intergovernmental

For child support caseworkers, obtaining complete information regarding non-custodial parents and establishing parentage 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. This makes it impossible to be truly efficient and provide complete client service, which can delay families from accessing resources and children from receiving the support they need for their well-being.
