Actually I believe the reason has more to do with business and civil law.
If I run a business and am having problems collecting a payment and have to take someone to court to get a payment for services I have done for them. Then that is a business expense and can be written off, and thus legal fees for enforcing income can be written off.

That's how I understand why legal fees for child support can be claimed.
