Child Support Enforcement

  • Online
This course is sponsored by UNC School of Government, and Office of Indigent Defense Services.

This full-day seminar provides training for attorneys who represent alleged contemnors in child support enforcement proceedings. The seminar will include sessions on both civil and criminal contempt in child support court, as well as perspectives from experienced practitioners for both the State and the defense. We are delighted to have joining us and presenting at the program attorney Daniel Hatcher, Professor of Law with the University of Baltimore and the Saul Ewing Civil Advocacy Clinic. In 2016 Professor Hatcher authored The Poverty Industry: The Exploitation of America’s Most Vulnerable Citizens, and this past year he wrote States Diverting Funds from the Poor (a section of the 2019 book Holes in the Safety Net: Federalism and Poverty). Professor Hatcher’s presentation will focus on the impact that child support enforcement proceedings have on impoverished people.
