How Do Our Partners Help?

Building strong networks leads to better outcomes for parents and children. Most child support programs collaborate with health care services, employment programs, family violence centers, or other social service agencies.

  • Job Services

    Parents who owe child support need a steady income to make payments. To increase parents’ ability to pay, many child support programs help parents look for work by referring them to employment services.

  • Health Care

    Federal law requires every child support order to include medical support. Parents may be eligible for medical support for their child through Medicaid, CHIP, or the Affordable Care Act.

  • Safely Pursuing Child Support

    When parents experience domestic violence, safety is a primary concern. OCSE and its partners work with parents on good safety planning to protect survivors, their children, and sensitive personal information.
