New Jersey is offering a week-long amnesty to parents who are behind in child support payments.

Those who have arrest warrants or have had their driving privileges revoked can visit county probation offices to make a payment or work out a payment plan between April 28 and May 3.

State officials said they'll work to come up with a settlement agreement regarding a lump sum payment, future payments and ongoing payments, and payments toward arrears.


When a settlement is reached, a court order will be drafted to include the agreement as well as discharge the warrant and release the child support license suspension.

New Jersey last offered a child support amnesty program in 2004.
