The state of Delaware is debating whether to enact a NEW form of CHILD SUPPORT. They are experimenting with a new ‘CHILD SUPPORT CARD’ which works much like an EBT card. The state will require a portion of all child support payments to go on the card. The hope is that in a few years all or most child support could be issued through the card.
Under the proposed card, the card will only be used only to pay for school-related expenses, food and clothing. The mother is required to report the child’s shoe and clothing size, and it must be reported every time he or she grows.
The card will specifically PROHIBIT parents from using it to purchase any beauty items or adult clothing.
There’s more. Under the proposed card once the child reaches 13, a NEW card with the child’s name will be issued. The child will EXCLUSIVELY be able to use the card until age 18.
