Child Support Caseload
Child Support Guidelines
Child Support Initiatives
   

Child support is the single largest child-focused program in terms of number of children served and the amount of money that is distributed to them. The IV-D (or public) child support caseload is also more diverse than other social programs, and information about the characteristics of families and individuals served by the program is necessary in order to understand the context of data regarding federal performance measures and to think creatively about new approaches and initiatives. This report series provides an annual profile of the active IV-D caseload in Maryland, based on a random sample of cases in July of each year. We examine the characteristics of cases and people in the IV-D caseload, including paternity and support payments, and provide an analysis of the current issues affecting the caseload locally and nationally. We also periodically issue special reports that focus on a particular issue or subpopulation of the active IV-D caseload, including for example, incarcerated obligors, arrears cases, and others.

Reports are free of charge, and may be downloaded from this page.
