Federal IVD Program
The Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF) administers the federal IV-D (child support) program in Kansas. Participation in this program means that additional enforcement tools are available.
There is no charge to enroll in the program, but you must complete an application form. The form may be obtained by contacting DCF at (316) 337-7000. A fee of 4% is deducted from each payment and forwarded to the State of Kansas to offset the cost of this program.
Some of the additional benefits of participating in this program include interception of state and federal income tax refunds to collect past due support, interception of unemployment compensation to collect child support, reporting delinquent child support to credit bureaus, assistance in locating absent parents, and the ability to file for interstate enforcement if a delinquent parent resides in another state.
