Fatherhood Program

The Georgia Fatherhood Program is administered by Georgia DCSS to help a non-custodial parent (NCP) avoid having to appear before a judge in court.  It’s an employment-based service that focuses on providing services that can help the NCP achieve self-sufficiency.  It also encourages parents to increase emotional, parental and financial involvement in the lives of the NCP’s children.

 

Services Offered:

  • Driver’s License Reinstatement
  • Child Support Services
  • GED Enrollment
  • Job Training
  • Job Search/Placement
  • Volunteer Work Opportunities
  • Support Order Modification (Where applicable)

 

The Fatherhood Program also educates parents on the enforcement process, including income withholding, license suspension process, outreach services, etc.  This is done to ensure that the parent understands the importance of paying support as ordered as well as the consequences of not complying.

 

Problem Solving Court Program

Through judicial oversight, Problem Solving Court assists to transition non-custodial parents who have become chronic non-payers of child support to self-sufficiency through parent accountability, employment and education.

 

Services offered through Problem Solving Court include substance abuse treatment, job assistance and placement, short-term training, coaching and mentoring, educational services, and Georgia Work Ready as an alternative to incarceration.
