Ohio’s child support system hasn’t been updated since 1992. Some Ohio lawmakers say it’s time for changes.
“The overriding goal of these changes are to make sure that parents who are receiving child support are getting realistic regular payments. I mean there are people out there who just cannot pay the support that is ordered," Gavarone said.
Gavarone’s bill has passed the House. A similar bill has passed the Senate. It’s now up to lawmakers in both chambers to figure out a compromise.
