Before determining eligibility, you must subtract the amount the household pays in legally-binding child support payments from the household's countable gross income. These payments may include all obligations specified in court or administrative orders.

Examples include but are not limited to

  • child support

  • child support arrearages, 

  • insurance premiums, 

  • required child care payments, or 

  • money owed to the state.


Before allowing the child support deduction, you must verify the court-ordered amount the client must pay and how much the client has paid. Obtain a copy of any court orders, and use the CFRRPA transaction to verify payments made through DHS.
