Child Support Program
Child Support Services was established for the purpose of legally requiring responsible parents to support their children. The program assists individuals with obtaining support from a non-custodial parent for the child to have an economically stable home.
Applications can be taken at DSS or mailed in to the office. Anyone that has of a child and the parent is not in the home may apply for child support services.
If you have questions or would like additional information please contact a Customer Service Representative at 1.800.992.9457.
If you are receiving services with our agency such as Medicaid or Work First Family Assistance, there is no fee for you to apply.
If you are not receiving services, the application fee is based on income and the amounts are $10 and $25. That fee is non-refundable and will need to be paid before we open your case.
