Welcome to the Child Support Services Department!

Photo of kids laying in a circleWe are responsible for establishing and enforcing support orders when a child receives public assistance or when a parent or legal caretaker requests our services. We act in the “public interest” and do not represent any individual. Our services include:  opening a case; finding parents; establishing a legal parent-child relationship; establishing child and medical support orders; and enforcing support orders. We provide these services at no or little cost to you.

All issues regarding a child support case can often be resolved without you having to go to court. This is one reason it is important that you stay in contact with our office once a case has been opened.

Our mission is to enrich our community by providing child support services in an efficient, effective and professional manner, one family at a time.
