How is Child Support Is Distributed In Calworks Cases?

If the custodial party is receiving CalWORKS, child support payments (except the first $50 of current support collected each month) go toward paying back the county, state and federal governments for CalWORKS payments. The first $50 of current support collected goes directly to the custodial party. Any medical support recovered goes toward paying back Medi­Cal.
