Child Support


Child Support Enforcement is a family-first program intended to ensure families self-sufficiency by making child support a more reliable source of income.

    The program goals are to ensure children have the financial and medical support of both their parents; to foster responsible behavior towards children; to emphasize the child's needs to have both parents involved in their lives; and reduce welfare costs.

The Child Support Enforcement Program will charge and collect the fee on each case when more than $550 has been collected and distributed. This fee will only apply to cases in which the person receiving the support has never received Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).
