News  "What is Child Support?"

The federal Office of Child Support Services (OCSS) explains what the child support program can do for parents. See the video below and a link to a glossary of terms provided by OCSS.
  • Child Support Enforcement Division
  • Child Support Services 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 parentage or to get, enforce, or change a child support order.
