Guam - The Attorney General's Office will use the month of August to spread awareness about child support.  Deputy AG Bobbie Cepeda says the need for non-custodial support is essential for the island's youth to have a thriving future.

She told KUAM News, "CSD utilizes several enforcement tools and other means available to encourage non-custodial parents to stay current with their financial responsibilities; enforcement implementation includes withholding child support from wages, intercepting income tax refunds, passport denial, license suspension, credit bureau reporting, and liens and levy's upon real and personal property."

The AG's Office also provides services encouraging support from both parents in their children's lives.
