The Non-Custodial Parent Choices Establishment Pilot (NCP Choices-EP) is the focus of this report, a new pilot program by the Texas Office of the Attorney General that aims to extend and expand upon the original, highly successful Non-Custodial Parent Choices (NCP Choices) program. In contrast to the original program, NCP Choices-EP assists low-income NCPs earlier in their case histories, before they have a chance to get behind on their child support payments and accumulate significant child support debt. This report describes the impacts of this pilot, which has shown early success in increasing child support collections.
