DADS: Working to improve fatherhood outcomes.

  • Child Support Payment Rates: Before becoming a DADS client, child support was paid at a rate of 41% per month. 12 months after working with DADS, the monthly child support payment rate increased to 52% of total DADS clients making monthly child support payments.

  • Back Child Support Payments: Before becoming DADS clients, fathers owed $36 million in unpaid child support. 48 months after working with DADS, the $36 million in unpaid child support decreased by 30%.


These outcomes are currently being updated in cooperation with the Division of Child Support, State of Washington.
