About DCSS

The Division of Child Support Services (DCSS) works to increase the consistency of financial support children receive from parents who do not have primary custody.

DCSS’ services include locating parents; establishing paternity; establishing, monitoring and enforcing fair support orders; increasing health care coverage for children; and removing barriers to payment. In its efforts to build stronger families, DCSS assists noncustodial parents in finding employment that pays above minimum wage by connecting parents who have behavioral or mental health issues with the resources to overcome or manage those issues so they can be positively involved in their children’s lives.
