Child Support

Parents have a responsibility to support their children financially. Obtaining child support is important to your child(ren)'s well-being. A child support order sets the amount and type of support parents are required to provide for their child(ren).


If a person does not already receive support, the child's parent, guardian, legal custodian, or the person with whom the child lives (considered the residential parent), can contact the local Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA) for assistance in establishing an order for the payment of child support and health care needs of the child(ren).
