Child Support

Child Support Awareness Month 2018

By the Governor of the State of North Carolina - A Proclamation


Whereas, children are entitled to financial support from their parents, and North Carolina continues to improve its efforts at child support collections; and

Whereas, in the State Fiscal Year 2017-2018, more than $700 million in child support was collected from parents of North Carolina's children; and

Whereas, there are nearly 345,391 child support orders in place, working to ensure that more than 206,041 children receive financial support from their parents; and

Whereas, children who do not receive adequate financial and emotional support from their parents may experience greater difficulty in becoming happy, healthy, and productive members of our communities; and

Whereas, many concerned and dedicated judges, district attorneys, clerks of court, sheriffs' personnel, and child support professionals work to establish and enforce child support orders for North Carolina's children, one of our state's most vital resources; 

Now, therefore, I, Roy Cooper, Governor of the State of North Carolina, do hereby proclaim August 2018 as "Child Support Awareness Month" in North Carolina, and commend its observance to all citizens.
