Missourians involved with collection of child support payments should soon have a more effective means of gathering financial support for Missouri children.
Curt Holden reports from Jefferson City.
The Missouri Automated Child Support System will allow prosecutors, circuit clerks, and state child support offices to use a federally mandated combined computer system to track non-custodial parents and their delinquent payments.
Missouri Social Services Spokesperson Deb Hendricks says the MACSS is a better system.
But the system won't be cheap costing 84 million dollars in federal and state funds.
Once all states have their systems operational, Missouri's Automated Child Support System will be part of a national computer record-keeping system.
