What Is A Iv-D Case?

The term IV­D comes from the Title IV Section D of the Social Security Act, which established the Child Support Enforcement program in 1975. IV­D cases are opened for all public assistance cases involving children not living with one or both parents. IV­D cases may also be opened for families not receiving public assistance if they apply for basic child support enforcement services (locating parents, establishing paternity, establishing child support orders, collecting and distributing child support, enforcing child support orders).
