Thank you for you understanding and patience.*

Child Support Services ensures 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.

Jefferson County offers child support services to custodial parents, non-custodial parents, and guardians. Those receiving public assistance (cash benefits from the county) are automatically referred and a Child Support Services case is opened for our services which may include collection of state debt. Services are available regardless of income or financial status.
