Public Aid Collection Fee.
In all cases instituted by the
Illinois Department on behalf of a child or spouse, other than one receiving
a grant of financial aid under Article IV, on whose behalf an application
has been made and approved for child support enforcement services as
provided by Section 10-1,
the court shall impose a collection fee on the individual who owes a child
or spouse support obligation in an amount equal to 10% of the amount so
owed as long as such collection is required by federal law, which fee shall
be in addition to the support obligation. The imposition
of such fee shall be in accordance with provisions of Title IV, Part D,
of the Social Security Act and regulations duly promulgated thereunder.
The fee shall be payable to the clerk of the circuit court for transmittal
to the Illinois Department and shall continue until child support
enforcement services are
terminated by the Department.
