Q) What information and document do I need to have to apply for child support?
A) As the custodial parent or legal custodian of the child, you must provide either a valid state ID, passport, Social Security card or proof of legal immigration residency, commonly called a “green card.” For child support calculations, DCSS will need income information. For the children you will need birth certificates, Social Security cards, proof of school enrollment, and copies of any court orders regarding the children. This includes divorce, adoption, guardianship, custody, and child support orders from other states.
