We offer several benefit packages which you'll find to fit your needs and your budget.
On any given day, there are over 50,000 individuals who are being incarcerated because of their arrears. There are plenty of cases where individuals have consistently paid their support for years and then something tragic happens, like a lay off or some other tragic situation, and then become behind on their payments where they become in contempt and are sent to jail. When in jail they are placed in cells with hardened criminals. One of ACS’s members who was previously detained for 3 months for not being able to pay $350, was actually placed in a cell with a man who was charged with murder because he had shot someone in the face with a shotgun.
According to the U.S. Office of Child Support, there are 15.8 million child support cases in the U.S, and out of that 11.3 million are in arrears! That means that nearly 75% of all child support cases are behind on payments. The total amount of arrearages reported is exceeding over $113 billion. Due to lack of reform and antiquated laws delinquent payers are being incarcerated at an alarming rate for weeks, months, even years, because they do not have the money to pay. These are individuals with usually no criminal history, being locked-up with serious criminals just because they had some hardship and are unable to pay a BILL! Many child support payers had lost jobs, employment opportunities, and sometimes their homes due to becoming incarcerated for weeks on end.
Case after case there is an injustice being placed on indigent individuals who are just having a hard time paying their child support obligation because of the lack of employment. These are hard working individuals who love their children and had always provided for them, but because of a job loss they fell behind on payments and are now stigmatized as a “deadbeat parent.”
ACS, which stands for Assured Child Support, goal is to prevent individuals from being in contempt of their court-ordered child support. ACS provides insurance coverage so that in the event that some tragedy happens the insurance will provide that crucial payment for them, thus preventing jail time, and buys time for them to get back on their track. ACS offers a wide range of policies to fit any budget or income.
