In many circumstances persons who owe child support have received monetary awards in the form of a court settlement, verdict, judgment, or under a workers compensation award. This Bill requires a prevailing litigant to advise his attorney or insurance carrier of any outstanding child support arrears owed and directs the attorney, insurance carrier or other paying agent to pay the proceeds up to the arrears owed to DCSS to satisfy any outstanding arrearages owed to the custodian. If child support arrears or retroactive support is owed, the lien, up to the amount of child support arrears or retroactive support owed, must first be paid before any funds (excluding the first $1,000 of net proceeds) may be released to the prevailing party.
