Maryland’s Child Support Caseload – A Profile of Custodians, 2015

Using Maryland data, the authors analyze current support and arrears owed to custodians, payments received by custodians, and payments retained by the state. Specifically, the authors utilize a sample of custodians who had active cases in July 2015 and examine each of these topics for the period of July 2014 through June 2015. The report provides information for all custodians as well as for two groups of custodians: those with a recent history of cash assistance participation (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, commonly referred to as TANF) and those without a recent history of cash assistance. The TANF custodians were examined separately because they are required to participate in the child support program, and they must assign all support payments to the state while receiving TANF benefits.
