Opinion: COLA for Md. Child Support Orders?
Publisher Name : Maryland Matters
In 1990, the Maryland General Assembly passed a law establishing guidelines in all child support cases. Beginning Jan. 1, 1993, and at least every four years after that date (the last review completed in 2016), the Child Support Administration of the Maryland Department of Human Resources must review the child support guidelines every four years to ensure that their application results in the determination of appropriate child support amounts. 45 CFR 302.56(e) and MD Family Law §12‐202(c)(1).
