The Division of Child Support Services (DCSS) helps locate parents who owe child support, assists in determining paternity, collects payments and provides resources to parents to ensure Georgia’s children receive financial and medical support from both parents. Children who receive support from both parents are more likely to experience financial and emotional stability, and have a greater chance at success in adulthood.
