Indiana Legal Services to Help Advise on Child Support

From the Indiana Lawyer blog comes a report from Greene County, Indiana. An ILS attorney will provide information for low-income payors of child support. I got to say that this is a great idea. ILS is part of the Legal Services Organization which serves the very poor. Too many people cannot afford an attorney to help them fix a support order that is driving them further into poverty. If they stop paying for a long enough period, they could rack up enough for a felony charge ($10,000.00). Some counties have civil public defenders handling these sort of cases, too.
