IV-D System Guiding Families Through Life's Challenges for Over 3 Decades

IV-D System Lawyer in Burnsville

Serving the Minneapolis Metro Area

Child support can cause many disputes in divorce proceedings. However, child support may be necessary when the non-custodial parent makes more money than the custodial parent and a child’s lifestyle needs to be maintained. The IV-D case is when a parent assigns certain rights to the government because a parent is receiving public assistance or has applied for child support under title IV-D of the Social Security Act. The program exists on the local, state, and federal levels so that parents can receive the assistance needed to collect the child support they require to take care of their children.

It doesn’t matter if your divorce is contested or uncontested; you will need to speak with a family lawyer to know which direction you need to take when it comes to the IV-D system and child support. You want to make the right decisions so that you can provide for your children the way they need to be provided for.

Reasons for IV-D Hearings

IV-D cases are scheduled for a number of reasons. They are established to modify, enforce, or even establish child support. There may need to be cost-of-living adjustments or a cost-of-living adjustment may need to be contested. The failure to meet child support obligations can result in contempt at the request of the county. It is the choice of the county to pursue someone for back child support if they have failed to meet their obligation.

While custody, spousal maintenance modification, and parenting time can qualify as IV-D cases, they cannot occur during the expedited process like child support can. Being able to take care of children takes precedence over other aspects of divorce. This is why you will have to have a skilled Burnsville IV-D attorney who understands the process and all issues regarding child custody and child support.
