Most wanted program ending

The Division of Child Support's Most Wanted program ended on Oct. 31. The program posted pictures of parents who were behind on their child support and the amount they currently owed on a separately hosted web site.  DCS was asked to suggest budgetary savings and after review of the Division's priorities the decision was made to end the program.

For those who are struggling to pay child support

DCS would like to connect you to our Alternative Solutions program designed to help parents who are having trouble making payments. Program specialists work with parents who are ready to identify and work on barriers to child support. Find out more about how the program worked for one parent in this video.

Another easy way to pay your child support, you can now use your debit or credit card.
