The Division of Child Support is changing banks to improve our service to parents. If you receive child support via a DCS card from Bank of America, that card is still good and DCS will continue to disburse payments to that card as they are received. You will receive information about a new card at a later date. Just to make sure we can get your new card to you quickly please make sure we have an up-to-date mailing address for you. Still have questions? Please call your support enforcement officer.
Learn more about our work at Child Support 101
We are inviting parents, community-based organizations and anyone else who works with families to learn more about how child support works at two Child Support 101 sessions at North Seattle College. The first session is March 22 so join us to talk about how we work with families to transform the lives of children.
DCS now has a video that helps employers report their new hires within 20 days of the employee's start date. The four-minute video is available in English and Spanish and explains the benefits of prompt reporting for the employer, the community and the kids whose parents receive regular payments.
Child support should change as your family's circumstances change. Find out how to change a child support order.
Another easy way to pay your child support, you can now use your debit or credit card.
