Child Support Customer Service Portal Now Available!

The SCDSS Child Support Customer Service Portal provides a secure way for parents to access important information about their case – any time, any day.

Whether paying or receiving support, parents can create a unique user ID and password to view payment information, hearing dates, enforcement measures in place, and receive occasional announcements affecting their case. The portal can also be used to update address, phone number, employment and email information.

The Child Support Services Division encourages responsible parenting, family self-sufficiency, and child well-being by providing assistance in locating parents, establishing paternity, establishing, modifying, and enforcing support obligations, and obtaining child support for children. Our goal is to create a system where children can count on their parents for the financial and emotional support they need to be healthy and successful.

It is free to apply for services. If your child resides with you and you'd like to apply for Child Support Services, the
