BILL NUMBER:S783

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the social services law, in relation to evenly distributing a
certain annual service fee between the custodial and noncustodial parent

PURPOSE:
Directs that a certain annual service fee between the
custodial and noncustodial parent be evenly distributed.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Paragraph (a) of subdivision 3
of section 111-g
of the social services law, as added by section 1 of part Z of
chapter 57 of the laws of 2008, is amended.

JUSTIFICATION:
In 2005, the federal government enacted the Federal
Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 where by a $25 fee was imposed on child
support payments. The fee is collected after the custodial parent has
received $500 in support payments for the year, the federal
government keeps two-thirds of the fee and the state and local
governments keep the rest. States were given a choice as to how to
collect the fee; pay the amount of what each fee would generate in
said state or choose which parent, custodial or noncustodial, to
recoup the fee from. New York has chosen to collect the fee from the
parent who receives the support payments.

Many single parents across the state rely on child support payments as
a means to live. Especially in these difficult economic times,
families are being forced to make hard financial decisions. It is the
goal of this legislation not to place the entire financial obligation
of this fee on the custodial parent, but rather divide the collection
of the fee between the custodial and noncustodial parent.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2011-12: A.515/S.816
Passed Senate; Remained in Assembly Social Services
Committee
2009-10: A.3959/S.1389; Remained in Social Services Committee

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect on the
ninetieth day after
it shall have become a law; provided however, that effective
immediately, the addition, amendment, and/or repeal of any rule or
regulation necessary for the implementation of this act on its
effective date are authorized and directed to be made and completed
on or before such effective date.
