IRP’s decades-long collaborations with the State of Wisconsin have led to the development of consistent income standards for determining child support awards, multiple policy evaluations of child support policy and practice initiatives, and the collection of an extended and uniquely complete series of court records of child support decisions in select Wisconsin counties.
