Plan to make child support payments easier

Chief Justice Brian Moree announced plans to end long lines to pay and collect child support


NASSAU-It will soon be easier to make and receive child support payments.
Chief Justice Brian Moree QC said the payment and collection process will be as simple as topping up a prepaid phone.
The proposal, which should take effect by April, eliminates the need to stand on long lines at the Magistrates’ Court Complex.
It won’t be necessary to enter the building at all, since payment machines will be installed in businesses and other public buildings.
This was just one of the changes that the Chief Justice announced at the opening of the legal year.
