Maryland Child Support Case Stratification Pilot

Case stratification is a promising best practice for the child support agencies because it exemplifies the concept that one size does not fit all by encouraging agencies to customize their enforcement practices by case type. Under this practice, cases are sorted into groups based on specific criteria, usually payment history, and an enforcement practice is developed for each group. A case stratification pilot was implemented by five Maryland jurisdictions from November 2010 to April 2011. This report examines the payment outcomes of the child support cases included in this pilot.
