As a Boise Divorce Attorney I often get calls concerning child support. There are many issues surrounding child support. They can be pursuant to a divorce or a custody proceeding or any other variety of scenarios. A frequent situation that I am involved in regard to Medicaid or other state assistance.
When a parent is receiving state funds or insurance through TAFI, or aid to needy families, there are certain rules that apply to child support. If you are receiving aid you are required to assign your right to child support payments to the state. Any monies you are owed pursuant to a divorce, custody or paternity order must be paid to the state in exchange for the support they are providing you in relation to TAFI.
This is an important point because as a Boise Divorce Attorney I often hear disparaging comments from people insinuating that a party is receiving child support from them and Medicaid or food stamps or the like. This simply is not the case.
