SACRAMENTO, California., 12 October 2021 / PRNewswire / – SupportPay, the leading co-parenting app to fully manage the process of alimony, child support and expenses, today announced its new program that offers families experiencing domestic violence a free subscription to SupportPay premium.

With a 9.7% increase in domestic violence calls in March and april 2020 alone, and this percentage is expected to increase continuously throughout the stay-at-home order period, it is more important than ever that these victims get the support they deserve to enable them to leave dangerous situations, ”he said. declared Sheri Atwood, Founder and CEO of SupportPay. “By offering SupportPay Premium free to abused families, we are helping children get the support they deserve, giving families a greater chance for financial stability while minimizing the risk of victims returning to abusive partners.”
