ATLANTA (GA) – Bibb County parents who are behind on child support are being offered the opportunity to get back on track. This opportunity, appropriately named Amnesty Day, is being offered by the Georgia Department of Human Resources’ Office of Child Support Services (OCSS) and is extended to all parents with a child support case in Bibb County who are at least two months behind on their payments. For parents willing to clear up delinquencies, OCSS will be prepared to release licenses and liens, dismiss Contempt actions and possibly even pickup orders for significant purge payments. Parents wishing to take advantage of this rare opportunity to resolve their child support obligations without penalty are asked to report to the Office of Child Support Services at 2720 Riverside Drive Suite 100, Macon, Georgia on March 28th and 29th, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
"Our objective is to ensure that children receive the support they need for the necessities of life and that families can remain self-sufficient," says OCSS Director Cindy Moss. "We want to work with both parents in a spirit of cooperation".
Letters were sent to 1000 noncustodial parents in the Macon area. However, those who did not receive a letter are welcome to come in and take advantage of the settlement opportunity. All parents should bring a valid driver’s license or other government-issued picture ID, social security card, money orders or cashier’s checks, proof of income and copies of any court orders that involve the children. The Department of Human Resource s Office of Child Support Services is encouraging any noncustodial parents to participate in this event.
