Changes to secure email may affect you.

The Division of Child Support uses a secure email system to communicate confidentially with customers such as business partners and parents. Beginning Dec. 31, we are switching to a new vendor for this service. If you receive a secure email after this date you may be required to register with our new vendor before you can get your email. The process should be quick and we appreciate your patience during this transition.  You may also review the Secure Email External User Guide if you have further questions.

Thank you for all  you do to support children so they may reach their full potential!
