We put children first by helping both parents assume responsibility for the economic and social well-being, health, and stability of their children. We help both parents recognize the value of improved relationships with both parents.

We offer solutions for parents including the establishment and enforcement of child support orders through exclusive enforcement tools, establishment of legal paternity through genetic testing, complete account maintenance, and exceptional customer service to assist customers every step of the way.

What We Offer

The collection of child support has a profound effect on families. We provide necessities of life for tens of thousands of children.

Some of the services we provide are: establishment of new orders for child support and medical insurance, enforcement of existing child support orders, collection and distribution of payments, complete accounting of child support payments, establishment of paternity, locate services, call center customer support and 24 hour automated telephone services.
