Statement on lawsuit challenging child support claw back policy

Posted in: , ,

VICTORIA— New Democrat social development spokesperson Michelle Mungall issued the following statement regarding the lawsuit challenging the claw back of child support payments from families on income and disability assistance in British Columbia:

“It’s a shame that the Liberals have not yet taken action to end the child support claw back, forcing families to seek legal recourse.

“Children are entitled to support from both parents, and the B.C. Liberal government could save these children, their families and taxpayers time and money by ending the claw back now.”

Mungall has been working with single-parent families who have been hurt by claw backs to demand an end to the claw back policy.
