Question and Answer

I get a welfare check every month. Why is a child support hearing necessary?

Even if you receive welfare benefits for your child, the person who is ordered to pay child support must still pay it. The money collected by Probation is sent to the county welfare agency to reimburse your monthly grant. The establishment of a regular payment pattern will ensure that you receive a monthly disregard (the first $50 of support collected in a month) in addition to your welfare grant. A hearing may be necessary if the obligor is not paying support as ordered or has not provided health care insurance for your children to be used in place of Medicaid.
