Case Transfer

What is Case Transfer?

Case Transfer meaning Each local child support agency shall transfer cases from one county to another when policy criteria are met. For Title IV-A cases, case ownership follows the custodial parent’s place of residence. For non Title IV-A cases, case ownership resides in the county where the custodial party last opened a Title IV-D case. The transferring of a case involves reassignment of the case to the appropriate county, and the transfer of hard copy documents.
