Compromise of Arrears Program (COAP)
In certain child support cases, the law allows for a parent to pay less than his or her total child support debt owed to the government because their child received public assistance during a time that the parent did not pay the court ordered child support. This is called a compromise of arrears.
There are a lot of things that have to be checked before a less than full payment can be accepted. If you, or someone you want to help, are interested in the Compromise of Arrears Program (COAP) please review click the link below for program information.
