Our attorneys have a solid background as well as many years of working with child support issues. They can efficiently analyze your original child support agreement and provide you with sound advice and counsel.
What is Title IV-D?
The individual state’s receipt of welfare funding is tied directly to the operation of a child support enforcement program due to a 1975 decision by the federal government. The state of Texas is distinctive in that it has designated the Attorney General as the responsible office for collecting child support as well as other child support assistance. Additionally, while most states run the child support enforcement programs at the county level, Texas operates under a statewide combined program. In short, any case where the custodial parent is receiving some form of assistance such as help in locating a non-custodial parent, the establishment of paternity or the establishment and enforcement of child support, becomes a Title IV-D case. Child support cases are automatically referred to the Office of the Attorney General should a parent apply for public assistance or Medicaid, and parents may also apply for Title IV-D services whether or not they have received public assistance.
