The Delaware County Child Support Enforcement Agency serves the public through effective implementation of federal/state regulations to establish and enforce support orders. The local Agency is under the authority of the Board of Commissioners.
Depending on the nature of a case, the Agency may be able to assist parents by providing one or more of the following services:
Paternity establishment for children born out-of-wedlock or for whom paternity is still a legal issue
Support order establishment
Medical order establishment
Collection and disbursement of support payments
Support order modification
Support and medical order enforcement
Issuance of withholding orders
Location of individuals who have a duty to pay child support
The Agency’s services are automatically available to all families actively receiving cash assistance or Medicaid as a participant in the Ohio Works First program. Non-recipients of Ohio Works First program, who reside in Delaware County or have a Delaware County order, can also receive service by completing an application.
