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.
