Wards of the state...
If a judge rules an unruly teenager has to become a ward of the state and is sent to a facility, what happens to the child support?

Yup. The state also gets child support if the custodial parent is receiving welfare benefits. It varies by state of course, but I can almost guarantee the state would get it.
i wouldn't think so. the state does not assume wards without ostensibly having the resources to pay for it.
