If a person chooses amnesty, they can make a payment, set up a reasonable payment plan and have the chance to discharge a warrant or have an order modification.

If a deal can't be made, a person will still be allowed to walk out free and clear. However, they will continue to have a warrant.

The last time New Jersey offered amnesty for child support payments was in 2004.
