Child Support Enforcement Division 

We provide services to parents who pay child support and parents and caretakers who receive child support. Child support is a way for parents to share the financial responsibility for their child, even when they do not live together. Either parent or the child’s caretaker can apply for our services to establish paternity (get an order determining a child’s legal father) or to get, enforce, or change a child support order.
