Due to social distancing guidelines, customers will be seen by appointment for Child Support Services. For your safety, services are encouraged to be accessed online or virtually whenever possible. Please sign up for an appointment on the Schedule An Appointment page.
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.
We can help Jefferson County families with the following services:
- Enforce support orders
- Establish child and medical support orders
- Establish paternity
- Locate non-custodial parents
- Modify support orders
