Applying For Child Support Services

DHS offers numerous services to parents or legal guardians trying to obtain financial and medical support for their child or children. Our child support staff can help you locate a missing parent, establish paternity, obtain or modify court orders and enforce those orders. DHS also collects and distributes child support payments.

DHS CANNOT resolve custody or visitation disputes, nor can we handle restraining orders or divorce proceedings.

When applying for services at your local child support office, you will need to provide some important information. Click here for a list of the information needed when signing up for services.
