Child Support

New 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.

Federal Stimulus Update (Posted 3-16-21):

With the passage of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, stimulus payments issued pursuant to that Act will be sent to all qualifying individuals. These stimulus payments will not be intercepted by the South Carolina Child Support Division, as they have been exempted from this action.

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.  It is free to apply for these services. 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.

Our Customer Service Center is available to all customers with child support cases serviced by the DSS Child Support Services Division and all private cases enforced by the Clerks of Court. Click here for contact information.
