Child Support

The child support enforcement system plays a critical role in facilitating private income transfers from noncustodial parents to their nonresident children. It also functions as a cost-recovery mechanism for government expenditures on these children. The program serves a majority of custodial families and transfers a substantial amount of support. Moreover, child support receipt has been credited with considerably reducing poverty.
