August is Child Support Awareness month. As such, Ohio has joined with other states across the nation to designate August as “Child Support Awareness Month.”
Williams County Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA) would like to offer the following Amnesty Programs for the month of August ONLY to allow local cases to be brought into compliance:
- DRIVER’S LICENSE REINSTATEMENT PROGRAM Obligors who have had their driver’s license suspended through the local CSEA may request reinstatement in return for a payment in the amount of one month’s obligation plus $1.00 on arrearages.
