It actually isn't that hard because of the majority of child support is paid voluntarily without the need of FRO.

The reason you see so much about FRO is because it is for the very small % (1-4%) of the population of child support payers that would not pay otherwise. It is a classic case of the highly-conflicted in our society consumers the majority of our resources.

Furthermore, FRO only reports on the problems... There are probably 20 situations for every 1 bad FRO case where the parents don't need (or want) FRO involved in their lives.

The biggest issue at FRO is that payers who work for cash or are self-employed take up significant amounts of time.

The only time FRO should be involved in a matter is when someone is consistently not paying CS or refuses to. FRO should be for the 1-5% of the times they are needed.

With electronic money transfers (email money transfers) and other modern systems to do this... Parents who don't have issues should not be using FRO.

Good Luck!
