J. What Can Judges Do to Support RODC Payments?

•   Be familiar with the eligibility criteria;

•   Know that DFPS can only make the payment based on a reimbursement process; and

•   Understand that if courts make orders regarding different dates of payments, this may delay the payment process for other relative caregivers, since every region is processing a large number of relative caregiver payments every month according to a set schedule.
