ACES, The Association for Children for Enforcement of Support, Inc. a non-profit organization, was founded in March 1984. Today, ACES is the largest national grassroots child support advocacy organization in the United States with 40,000 members and 165 chapters in 45 states. All are united in the ACES mission: to assist disadvantaged children affected by parents who fail to meet their legal, moral and financial obligations to support their children. A voluntary National Board of Trustees advises the organization.
ACES members are representative of the families who have 18 million children owed $100 billion in unpaid child support. A snapshot of the average ACES member would show a single, female head of household who earns $14,000 per year. Her two children are owed $7,000 in unpaid support, which has accumulated at the rate of $65 per week for almost three years. She cannot afford a private attorney to pursue the father for the collection of child support and the children's unpaid medical bills. She is dependent on the local government Child Support Agency, which has taken no action on her behalf in over eight months.
This is a non-profit child support self-help enforcement program. Member services include; self help information about legal rights and remedies for child support and visitation problems; absent parent location service; "How To Collect Child Support" book.
