The Sussex County Sheriff’s Office’s will participate in the Child Support Amnesty Week.

The New Jersey Department of Human Services Division of Family Development, in conjunction with the New Jersey Sheriff’s Association, has established a week-long event granting amnesty for defendants who may have failed to comply with the terms of their court-ordered child support payments.

The Child Support Amnesty Week will be held throughout the state from Monday, April 28, through Saturday, May 3, 2014. Those individuals, who reside in Sussex County and are currently the subject of outstanding non-support warrants, may contact the Sussex County Sheriff’s Office and arrange to make child support payments without the fear of arrest for non-support.

Only those individuals who voluntarily participate in the amnesty program will be afforded this amnesty.

Anyone who believes they are the subject of an outstanding child support warrant and wish to be included in the amnesty program should contact the New Jersey Child Support Center at (877) 655-4371 or the Sussex County Sheriff’s Office at (973) 579-0888 and ask to speak to a detective to make arrangements to make payments and have the warrant vacated.

Additionally, the sheriff asks any member of the public who can provide information that may lead to the arrest of someone who owes child support to contact the Sussex County Sheriff’s Office Crime Stoppers toll-free tip line at (888) 973-CRIME. Tips also may be submitted online through the Crime Stoppers Online Anonymous Tip Form. This information can greatly assist the Sheriff’s Office in enforcing outstanding warrants.
