The state of Delaware is having a debate on whether to enact a new form of child support, that would require a portion of all child support payments to go onto a card. The idea is that eventually all or most child support would be issued through a card.
Under the proposed card, only school-related expenses, food and clothing would be allowed to be purchased. The mother would also be required to report the child’s shoe and clothing size and needs to be updated every time the child grows.
The card will strictly prohibit parents from using it to purchase adult clothing or beauty supplies. Once the child turns age 13, a new card is issued and good until the child turns 18.
