For the most part, current child support and child support arrears are paid before other obligations. Spousal support and associated arrears are paid next. Medical orders usually come next. After all of the above are paid, other obligations are paid such as paternity testing fee, attorney fees, clothing and day care costs or other special payments. Finally, current and past administrative fees are paid.
OBES will only be used to pay current child support.
Court orders may affect allocations, the most common occurrence being payments received from the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation (OBWC).
