NJ + DR child support agreement
New Jersey becomes the first US state to reach an agreement with Dominican judicial authorities to ensure that parents living in the Dominican Republic pay child support. Attorney General Radhames Jimenez Pena and New Jersey Department of Human Services commissioner Jennifer Velez signed what is deemed as a landmark reciprocal agreement to expand the reach of the New Jersey child support system. The agreement, which becomes effective immediately, was attested by New Jersey Attorney General Jeffrey S. Chiesa.
It compels New Jersey and the Dominican Republic to assist each other with ensuring the support of children by their parents within their jurisdictions. Currently, there are 536 active cases in the New Jersey Child Support System for which one party resides in the Dominican Republic.
Previous to the agreement, it was difficult to initiate or enforce child support orders with parents who left New Jersey to return to the Dominican Republic without their children. The same challenges applied to situations in which a parent moved to New Jersey from the Dominican Republic, leaving their children behind.
"This agreement is right and just," said Dr. Jimenez Pena, who traveled to New Jersey with staff to participate in this long awaited event. "Children are entitled to be supported by both parents and parents cannot allow nationality and distance to interfere with the moral and legal responsibility they have to their children."
"In law enforcement, the inability to carry out our duties in another jurisdiction can be incredibly frustrating," said New Jersey Attorney General Chiesa, who attended the event and attested to the signatures. "Reciprocity allows New Jersey and the Dominican Republic to cooperatively and effectively manage child support orders.
