Judiciary: Child Support Enforcement Corrections; Hire Date Reporting
The stated purpose of Bill 19-686 is to amend section Title 16 of the District of Columbia Official Code to provide for more clear rights and terminations for parties involved in custody support orders. In particular, the legislation would make child support orders terminate automatically upon a child's 21st birthday, and would allow a parent who is to be incarcerated for six months or longer to have a child support order modified as of the date of incarceration. The stated purpose of Bill 19-739 is to amend the District of Columbia Child Support Enforcement Amendment Act of 1985 to require that employers report the date of hire to the District of Columbia Directory of New Hires. This measure is intended to bring the District into compliance with recent changes to federal law.
