Who Is Eligibility For Child Support Service

BY: Undisputed Legal Inc./Child Support Process Service Department

Any parent or non-parent caregiver acting as guardian of at least one child under 21 is eligible to apply for child support services. Such a person is considered the custodial parent in the child support case. If you are using for or receiving, Temporary Assistance (officially termed “Family Assistance” or “Safety Net Assistance”) for the child, child support services may be provided to you based on your application for this program. Child support services may also be provided if you apply for Medicaid for yourself and the child and complete an application/referral for child support services. Child support services will continue after you stop receiving Temporary Assistance or Medicaid unless you request your child support case be closed. Child support services are also provided for a child placed in foster care and may continue after the foster care placement ends. If the child returns to you after being discharged from foster care, child support services will continue unless you request otherwise. A child under the age of 21 or a non-custodial parent or putative (alleged) father may also apply or be eligible for child support services.
