Local Child Support Office:

Your local child support office can answer questions about your case or help you open a child support case. The office is usually located in the county where you live. 

They have information about your case, including how much you owe or can expect to receive.

Your local child support office can locate noncustodial parents, establish paternity, establish and enforce support orders, modify orders, and collect and pay out child support payments. 

To contact your local child support office, select your state on the child support contact map to find your state or tribal website. Your state or tribal website will provide contact information for your local child support office.

State and Tribal Child Support Agencies:

Each state or tribe operates its child support program a little differently according to its own laws. State child support agencies oversee activities and operations throughout the state.

While child support programs vary from state to state and tribe to tribe, services are available to all who need them, regardless of income, residency, nationality or gender. Our child support contact map gives websites and contact information for state and tribal child support agencies. All state websites list contact information for your local child support office. The local office can answer questions about your case or help you open a child support case.
