Important Information for Parents regarding CARES Act federal stimulus checks
On March 27, 2020, Congress passed and President Trump signed into law the
Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act (the “Act”). The Act, in
part, provides qualifying individuals with a recovery rebate of up to $1,200 (or $2,400 if
married and filing jointly), plus up to $500 for each qualifying child.
Please be advised…
The economic impact payments (stimulus payments) made to eligible
noncustodial parents who owe past-due child support and who are subject to
intercept under the Federal Income Tax Refund Offset Program will be offset by
the amount of past-due child support.
The CARES Act does not provide states the option to suspend federal interception.
This action takes place prior to the funds being received by the state Child Support Services Division.
