Father is holding up his infant son.The Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) invites you to download our series of fact sheets to learn why and how this federal agency, together with our partners in the national child support program, work with both parents to deliver vital child support services to children.

Several of the facts sheets are especially timely as this month we commemorate Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and Veterans Day is November 11.

The fact sheets can help parents and families, as well as child support professionals throughout the country, learn about innovative projects, evidence-based strategies and family-centered initiatives in OCSE and state and local child support agencies.

The national child support program serves 1 in 4 children in the United States. In OCSE, we collaborate with state, tribal and local child support agencies, other federal agencies, and stakeholder organizations to help assure reliable support for children living apart from a parent. Last year, the national child support program collected $27 billion in child support.

Child support agencies around the nation also obtain health care coverage for children, link low-income fathers to employment, and operate the federal Access and Visitation program.
