Financial Insecurity and Domestic Violence: A Conversation about Child Support

General Material
Published Date
August, 2018

For survivors of domestic violence, financial insecurity is often a huge problem. Without enough money to support themselves and their families, survivors have a hard time gaining independence from abusive partners. Child support is often a crucial resource, but filing for it, collecting payments, and enforcing orders all present potential safety risks. In this New Thinking podcast, Michael Hayes from the Office of Child Support Enforcement and Krista Del Gallo from the Texas Council on Family Violence talk with Robert V. Wolf about strategies that states and the federal government are promoting to help survivors safety access child support.
