Did you know?

If the person ordered to pay CS gets on TANF then they get their CS suspended and dont have to pay anything. My ex has 1 kid he doesnt see, 2 with me he chooses not to see, and just popped out 2 more with his GF. He hasnt paid CS in 5yrs and now on TANF.

  • TANF is welfare cash assistance in OR. People can stay on it for up to 5yrs. I didnt know that it suspended child support payments from being accrued though. Doesnt seem too fair. Wish my power company would do that if I had no money! Lol =)

  • For some of us who are struggling to feed our kids while our spouses make their CS and are DENIED their parenting time and have games played, this is helpful. MY kids are starving.

  • TANF is Temporary Assistance for Needy Families ... it is welfare.
