Are there exceptions to these priorities?
Yes. Payments received from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or Ohio Department of Taxation (ODT) may be allocated to reimburse past public assistance received by the custodial parent. Court orders may affect allocations, the most common occurrence being payments received from the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation (OBWC). Attorneys representing non-custodial parents who receive a workers compensation settlement often obtain a court order for payment of their fees from the statement.
