Communication is key to any productive partnership. Child Support Program professionals work with experts in many fields. Finding solutions to help families be successful is a critical component of the child support process. One of the most challenging and rewarding aspects of developing a positive and sustainable partnership is communication.

In this Web-talk you’ll hear from panel experts who will address the rewards and specific challenges in working with the court to establish and enforce child support orders. From communication challenges, funding, and logistics – you’ll learn about what has worked, what hasn’t worked and how to address the roadblocks you may face.
