50 victims of domestic violence get child support relief through a donation by the Custodial Support Foundation's Project Child Support initiative.

On September 12, 2012, a new child support collection agency, the Custodial Support Foundation (CSF), verified its donation of 50 free subscriptions to victims of domestic violence. In conjunction with the Bergen County Department of Human Services, Division of Alternatives to Domestic Violence, these subscriptions will allow custodial parents to recover their child support arrears through investigative, legal, and collection means at no cost.

According to Alexandra B. Stremler, President of the CSF, a specific set of criteria has been made as to who will qualify for this donation of 50 free subscriptions. The CSF announced that the victim must be unemployed, and a custodial parent, with an existing Child Support Order, who is owed arrears. The noncustodial parent also must have verifiable income (such as bank accounts, personal property, or real estate) to pay said arrears. See: Donation Letter and Acceptance Letter

Showing further support for victims of domestic violence, Episode 9 of the Custodial Support Foundation’s Custodial Support Forum is dedicated to these victims, and to helping them both financially as well as emotionally. This episode, Child Support and Domestic Violence, airs on September 22, 2012 on Cablevision and features Susan De Jackmo of the Division of Alternatives to Domestic Violence (ADV), who is a key member in providing victims these free subscription service.

These pro bono services to victims of domestic violence are offered to enrich the lives of custodial parents in the ADV division, and to ultimately benefit the children affected by both family violence, and lack of child support by the noncustodial parent. The Custodial Support Foundation also enables any custodial parent owed arrears to subscribe to its cost effective Collection Program for only 13 payments of $30, which is less than $1 per day.

The Custodial Support Foundation's mission is to provide custodial parents with services to receive the child support their children deserve, and provides noncustodial parents with the child support resource to reduce the more than $100 billion owed in child support arrears in the United States of America.

The Custodial Support Foundation was founded by Kai Patterson, who appointed Attorney Alexandra Stremler as the President of the Foundation. Mrs. Stremler and Attorney Benjamin Kelsen will provide legal assistance for the ADV Victims.
