Shakeup in OAG Child Support Division as top officials exit

Three top officials of the Attorney General’s Child Support Division, including Deputy Attorney General Mara Friesen, have resigned or retired in the wake of the legislature’s hard pass on continued funding of an overhaul to the division’s child support payment system.

The Attorney General’s office has spent $367.5 million on the overhaul known as T2, shorthand for Texas Child Support Enforcement System 2.0. Lawmakers zeroed out further funding on the project, potentially leaving Attorney General Ken Paxton’s office on the hook for the $277 million the federal government has contributed to the project.
