To work with families to ensure that paternity is established for every child and to obtain financial
and medical support for the benefit of the children.
We want to work together with both non-custodial and custodial parents to accomplish this goal.
All children deserve to be supported by both of their parents in a manner consistent with each
of the parents capabilities.
Our services are available to either parent, or the caretaker/guardian of a child who needs help in
establishing a child support obligation or collecting child and /or medical support.
The Department of Child Support Services will automatically open a case for any individual
receiving public assistance.
