The Federal Social Security Act Title IV-D requires this review every four years. In 2008 an increase was recommended and accepted for most non-custodial parents in Alabama. The poorest and richest had declines. PSI did the economic report, which was accepted. The Alabama Family Rights Association thought to include the work of economist Mark Rogers of Georgia. The request was denied. Rogers’ model is cost based versus PSI's which is income based.
Again, Alabama parents are needed to make are voices heard by our courts, judges, lawyers and legislators.
