How to Apply

There are numerous ways to apply for Child Support Services. Unless you are a recipient of TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families), applying for our services is entirely up to you.

If you are receiving TANF, an application for Child Support Services will be sent to our office automatically, and it should require no further action on your part.

It is important to know that you do not have to have formal, legal custody of your child to apply. The child does have to live with you, though, in order for you to be considered a CUSTODIAL PARENT. If your child resides with you, and you want to apply for Child Support Services, please click here to complete the application. 

If your child does not live with you, but you would like to legally establish paternity, please click here to complete the application.
