Program supports Massachusetts Child Support Guidelines

The Brockton Area Fatherhood Program was set up to help troubled men change their lives, be good fathers and keep up with their child support payments. The program teaches men how to be better parents by providing lessons in child safety, how to better express affection and how to have good listening skills. With the help of this program, it is hoped these men will have the support they need to learn the importance of family responsibilities, and how to adhere to Massachusetts Child Support Guidelines.

The program is not new; in fact, it has been in existence for the last 15 years. The men in the program come from various backgrounds and lifestyles -- some enroll by order of the court systems, some from substance abuse programs and some are men who simply wish to effect positive change in their lives. The age ranges from 14-year-old fathers to grandfathers learning to parent their grandchildren. The participants learn how to be financially responsible, how to provide for families and children and how to deal with complex issues like addiction.

The program consists of 12 week-long sessions convened once a week for two hour periods. The classrooms are not set up in typical fashion -- there are video and discussion-based learning, along with the inclusion of guest speakers. There are also open discussions designed to allow participants to share personal stories and experiences in order to facilitate peer-guided learning.

The Fatherhood Program has helped many fathers turn their lives around. The Massachusetts Child Support Guidelines require non-custodial parents to make regular child support payments -- one of many issues targeted for improvement by the program. The state of Massachusetts offers a variety of such programs and legal services to help custodial or non-custodial parents find help for their child support cases and needs.
