Child Support Enforcement Division

Child support is a way for parents who don't live together to share the financial responsibility for their child. Through our many services, we work with parents and employers to make sure families receive child support payments on time and in full.

Who we serve

We provide services to both 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.  We can help you establish paternity (get an order determining a child’s legal father) and help you get, enforce, or change a child support order.  Either parent or the child’s caretaker can apply for our services.
