Arrears debt to welfare, & @ what cost for a lawyer.

Q: I payed off child support, but I’m still being charged for welfare arrears.

A: If you owe arrears to DSS, then pursuant to statute the Court cannot cancel the arrears (in most instances). The only (extremely rare) exception is if you can prove your income was below the poverty line in any given year the arrears accrued – and that same was through no fault of your own (i.e., it cannot be self-imposed poverty). For more info, call a Bronx Child Support attorney.
