A staff member and I had a in-depth conversation regarding this last week & we’re looking to other Programs to see if & how you address these cases:
Does your Tribe collect child support for Non-TANF relative caregivers? If you do, what kind of documentation do you require? (Tribal Guardianship documents, etc.) I’m specifically looking for whether or not any Programs collect for relative caregivers using only birth certificates to show relation.
An example of this would be Grandparents raising grandchildren without any official documents. Does anyone use just birth certificates to show they are related & then open a case and collect from the parents or do you require additional documents proving legal authority/custody- if so, what?
Thank you for your help with this.
