Respicio asks AG to compel Administration Dept. to implement electronic child support payment law
Senator Rory J. Respicio has written to Attorney General Lenny Rapadas asking that the Department of Administration be compelled to follow the requirements of Public Law 31-95, concerning the electronic remittal of child support payments and withholdings.
Respicio said, “This law benefits both the affected children and their custodial parent/guardian through electronic remittance of child support payments, and would speed up the entire payments process. This administration has a pattern of choosing what laws they will follow when it suits their convenience.”
Respicio informed the AG that the Department of Administration needed to place a higher priority on this issue. “If necessary,” Respicio wrote, “I strongly recommend your good offices seek a remedy through the Courts to compel DOA to implement and follow the law.”
Copies of the letter were also sent to the Child Support Division of the AG’s Office, the Department of Administration and Senator Adolpho Palacios, who is the oversight chair.
UNSWORN DECLARATION: I hereby declare that the foregoing is true and correct to the best of my knowledge and belief, under penalty of perjury of the laws of Guam, this declaration being sworn and made in lieu of an affidavit pursuant to Title 6 Guam Code Annotated §4308, at the place and date identified herein.
