Child Support Services

Mission Statement


The Mission of the Child Support Services Program is to assure that all children receive financial and medical support from each parent. This is accomplished by locating each parent, establishing paternity and support obligations, and enforcing those obligations, and by helping both parents assume responsibility for the economic and social well-being, health, and stability of their children. We recognize that children benefit from positive ongoing relationships with both parents.

The primary customers of the Child Support Services Program are children in need of support. Secondary customers are the two parents of these children. It is important to recognize the different values and perspectives of those involved in children’s lives and to acknowledge that, while interests may conflict, the physical and emotional needs of the child are paramount.

The child Support Services Program is a partnership between federal, state and local County child Support Services agencies and courts, law enforcement agencies, and other entities operating under cooperative agreements with Child Support Services agencies, partners work together to achieve results for the children and their parents.
