Project Child Support’s Mobile Unit Helping Families In The Tri-State

Posted: Updated:
Elizabeth, New Jersey (MY9NJ) -

Project Child Support provides an array of different services to help assist both custodial and non-custodial parents throughout the tri-state area with child support related issues in order to help a child get the support they deserve.

Yesterday their new mobile assistance center was set up outside of the family court building in Elizabeth, New Jersey to help spread the word about what they do and help those families engrossed in a child support battle.

Kai Patterson started this initiative because he said his mother never received the child support she deserved to help raise him and as a result he's working to help other families in the same situation in honor of her memory.

Patterson's goal with the mobile assistance vehicle is to help over 200 families a month. He travels across New Jersey and New York trying to help those in need.

“I don't know of an issue more emotionally charged than child support. I mean think about it. You have two individuals fighting over their two most precious assets or most precious resources: their children and their money and nothing becomes more volatile than fighting for those two things,” he said

He also established a website and soon to be app bountyalert.com that will help engage the community in the search for those with warrants out for their arrest due to unpaid child support.

As important as this service is to provide to families, the family court system in New Jersey is very controversial. Oftentimes it is hard for families to get necessary revisions in the case that their lifestyle situation has changed.
