Child support resource fair offers fresh start, amnesty
Wyandotte County residents with unpaid child support, missed court dates or other child support problems can get a fresh start at the Child Support Amnesty and Resource Fair.
The annual 2011 Amnesty Day and Resource Fair will be from noon to 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 26, at the Holiday Inn Express at The Legends.
Residents attending the Amnesty and Resource Fair will have the opportunity to straighten out problems with the child support court, including making back payments, arranging new court dates and getting bench warrants lifted.
The event is also a resource fair for both payers and recipients of child support. The “Workforce One” mobile unit will be on hand assisting with online job searches and job opportunities. Representatives from local training programs and community colleges will also be there to help participants connect with jobs and job training. Additionally, information will be available for participants to learn how to remove barriers to employment, such as old criminal convictions and records of arrest.
Participating agencies are Kansas Department of SRS Child Support Enforcement, District Court Trustee for Wyandotte County, Johnson County Child Support Offices, Leavenworth County Attorney’s Office and Workforce Partnership Mobile One.
