Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Child support and enforcement; lien on personal injury and wrongful death awards; publication of delinquent parent list. Clarifies that a court may issue a show cause order or capias for failure to pay child or spousal support where personal or substitute service has been obtained. A lien on personal injury and wrongful death awards is created for child and spousal support and given priority over other liens except those established on behalf of (i) health care providers who treated the injured person; (ii) the Commonwealth; (iii) the attorney representing the injured person; and (iv) a health insurance provider (statutory right of subrogation). The bill requires the Division of Child Support Enforcement to publish a list of the most delinquent parents, as determined by the Commissioner, and gives the Commissioner of the Department of Social Services access to information held by criminal justice agencies for use in locating delinquent parents. This bill is identical to SB 1206.
