Amnesty for Child Support Warrants

If you have a warrant for unpaid child support in St. Louis, you may be able to get your warrant lifted for a small fee at the upcoming Child Support Warrant Relief program on August 17, August 21, and August 31, 2013.

You must appear in person at the Better Family Life Cultural Business and Education Center in St. Louis and pay $10 for a voucher for each outstanding warrant. Then you take the voucher to the court and pay $100 to get your warrant lifted and obtain a new court date. At that point, you can either pay the amount owed to the court for the unpaid child support, appear in court to represent yourself, or hire an attorney to represent you.

33 municipal and county courts in the St. Louis area will be participating in the Child Support Warrant Relief program. Before purchasing the voucher, you should contact the court where you have a warrant to find out if that court is participating in the program.

Please note that some courts will not lift the warrant if you have already appeared in court and pleaded guilty.

The child support amnesty program will be held on the following days:

Dates:
Saturday, August 17, 2013
Wednesday, August 21, 2013
Saturday, August 31, 2013
Time:
7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Location:
Better Family Life Cultural Business and Education Center
