COAP Workshop 

Do you owe past due child support?

Join us the 2nd Tuesday of every month to see if you may qualify for the Compromise of Arrears Program (COAP).  In certain child support cases, the law allows a parent to pay less than their total child support debt owed to the State of California.  Contact our office, or join us at the next COAP Workshop to see if your case qualifies for a personalized repayment plan.
