Summary
The AB 1058 Funding Allocation Joint Subcommittee recommends that the Judicial Council approve a new funding methodology that is workload-based for the AB 1058 child support commissioner program and maintain the current funding methodology for the family law facilitator program until FY 2021-22.

The subcommittee recommends beginning to implement a workload-based funding methodology for child support commissioner funding while waiting to reallocate funds for Family Law Facilitators to ensure that new workload information can be incorporated into a model.
