BILL NUMBER:S816

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:

2009-10: S.1389

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.
