National Parents Organization of Connecticut is seeking volunteers to respond to Connecticut’s Department of Social Services proposed amendments to the child support guidelines. We need volunteers to attend the hearings and help get other members to attend the hearings.

Please email us if you will attend a hearing or are interested in getting more members to attend.

The Connecticut Executive Committee is writing National Parents Organization of Connecticut’s formal response representing our views and recommendations. It will be posted on the website when it is competed.

From our experience in Massachusetts, we have learned that attendance is important.

Volunteer Testimonial

“Children deserve both parents. National Parents Organization is committed to making this common-sense concept the norm in the United States. When we succeed, children will no longer be victims of a system that fosters conflict between parents and traumatizes children in the process. No one should have to endure the experiences that I had as a child, or what my daughter has been experiencing for most of her life.”
