Essentials for Attorneys, 3rd edition, is written as a guide for the child support agency (IV-D) attorney. Initial chapters provide an overview of the roles and relationships of the federal OCSE, its regional counterparts, and the state child support programs. These chapters will be of special interest to the attorney new to the IV-D program. The remainder of the book is organized around topics that are related to case preparation. The information is geared toward the IV-D attorney, regardless of whether the attorney practices in a judicial or administrative environment.
