The Child Support Services Division (CSSD) is the district agency that helps the person caring for a child to collect child support from the child's non-custodial parent. The CSSD also helps those who are divorced to collect spousal support.

Services Available:
  • Determining a child's birth parents and establishing parentage
  • Establishing support order

  • Locating a child's parent for the purpose of establishing parentage and child support
  • Enforcing child support payments and medical support established by court order
