Henderson County Child Support Amnesty Week

You could call it a "get out of jail free card" for people in henderson county?

Who are behind on their child support payments.

Next week?

Henderson county will hold its third child support warrant amnesty week.

The idea is to get parents who owe child support back on track with those payments instead of arresting them and putting them in jail.

Each case will be reviewed?

And attorneys will discuss what's fair and appropriate for repayment options.

"we don't want to see anybody go to jail just for not paying child support but sometimes that's the only option that's left.

So when these people have gotten so far behind that the judge has issued a warrant what we do is offer this opportunity for them to come in get things back on track.

Get the support back to being paid and get that warrant quashed so they don't end up being arrested."

To be considered for the amnesty program?

You'll have to show proof of employment and updated contact information?

And you'll have to set up recurring electronic payments.

Authorities believe at least 200 parents are currently behind on their payments.

If you'd like to see if you have a warrant?

You can call the henderson county courthouse.
