Apply for Services

How to Apply

There are several ways to apply for child support services through Jefferson County:

Online

Apply online through the Colorado Division of Child Support. You may submit the application online, or print a copy and mail it to us. Please note there are portions of the application that cannot be completed online and we will send you the balance of the application when we receive your online application.

In-Person

If you don’t have a computer, you may access the online application at a computer kiosk located in our lobby or you can request one from our receptionist.

By Mail

Call our Customer Service Center at 303-271-4300 to request that an application be mailed to you. Then complete the application and mail it in or deliver it to our office in person.

Additional Required Documents

In addition to your completed application, you must provide a copy of each applicable document:

  • Current Medical Insurance Information for Child(ren)
  • Each child’s birth certificate
  • Existing child support order, divorce decree, separation agreement, parenting plan, or any other order that applies to your situation
  • A photograph of the other parent, if available
  • Social Security Cards for both you and the child, if available
  • Your photo ID

Additional documents may be required as needed from your specialist. We will contact you if additional information is needed. Notary services and a copy machine are available at no cost in our office for your convenience.

Application Fee

A $20 non-refundable application fee must be paid to complete the application process. Make a check or money order payable to Jefferson County Department of Human Services. If you have applied for or are receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP/Daycare Assistance), this fee is not required.

You will receive notice by mail when your application, supporting documents and fee have been received and your case has been initiated.

Cases in Other States

If you live in another state, you can contact the nearest child support office in your state and complete their application. The other state can establish and enforce an order there or will involve a Colorado county directly if needed.

Review & Adjustment of Existing Child Support Order

If you have an open Child Support Services case, and you believe the ordered amount should be increased or decreased, you can request a review of your existing child support order by submitting a modification packet to our office.  You may access the packet on the State Child Support Services Portal. Contact your specialist for additional information or required documents by calling 303-271-4300.
