Policy makers and stakeholders have been engaged in a national discussion about establishing parenting time for never-married noncustodial parents when initial child support orders are entered. Congress recently weighed in by resolving that “establishing parenting time arrangements when obtaining child support orders is an important goal which should be accompanied by strong family violence safeguards.” This webinar explores what it means to integrate “strong family violence safeguards” into child support parenting time initiatives and offers safety criteria designed to augment the kinds of safeguards that customarily accompany child support establishment processes.
