What Does Child Support Go To?

Majority of the times this money usually goes to essentials like food, clothing, and the overall welfare for the child or children. While the remaining portion of this money will be used for expenses like daycare and medical expenses, which can also be decided upon through negotiation and litigation.

Types of Child Support Cases

Each of the types of Child Support case types begins with the reference letters IV or Roman numeral four. The IV refers to the Title IV of the Social Security Act of 1975, that article covers any grants given to states that are to be used for the purpose of providing aid and services to any families suffering from poverty in need of supports that have children. Each state is required by Federal Law to have its own expedited child support process AKA – Ex Pro Child Support for hearing the various types of child support cases. Only the IV-D type case is allowed to be heard by the expedited process.

  • IV-DA cases of this type is one where the custodial guardian or parent receives assistance from the Office of Child Support Enforcement.
  • IV-A – Case types of this nature are ones in which the custodial guardian or parent receives public assistance from the state.
  • IV – E – These are case types in which the children are being cared for someone besides the parent like a relative or are in foster care.
  • Non IV – D – These are cases in which child support is maintained by a private party like in the period of time following a divorce.
