Child Support Glossary

Publication Date: March 12, 2013

The Glossary of Common Child Support Terms defines a list of acronyms and other terms used by child support workers. Communication among caseworkers nationwide is a major key to successfully processing cases and collecting payments for child support.  The glossary is intended to be a reference tool to those who are new to child support.  It will serve to break down the barriers of communication with other professional child support workers.

The glossary is also a useful tool for custodial and noncustodial parents when communicating with the caseworker, and for the public at large who desire to understand child support better.
