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.

Documents Needed to apply for child support
A valid photo ID, such as your driver’s license or up-to-date passport
Proof of your address, such as a recent rent receipt, mortgage statement, or utility bill
Birth certificate(s) for the children for whom you are seeking child support
Your ex’s contact information or any information you have regarding his or her current address or place of employment

  1. I knw this is not an easy job especially on the heart. Those of us who are calling to reach someone would whole heartedly appreciate it if calls were answered & returned in a timely manner. We are expected, demanded & then condemned for not being “timely” in business matters with this office. “You” too should honor the same code put forth.
