Child support services are available to both custodial and non-custodial parents. Even if the other parent is living in another state, you can apply for services in Oregon (see Interstate Child Support Cases for more information). Caretakers or relatives who have physical custody of a child may also be entitled to child support services.
The Child Support Program may be able to provide assistance with the following services:
Establishing paternity (who the child's biological father is)
Finding the non-custodial parent
Establishing a child support order or making changes to an existing support order
Coordinating health care coverage for a child
Determining the amount of past due child support
Collecting child support payments
Collecting spousal support payments when spousal support is part of a child support order
To apply for child support services, you can contact your local child support office or fill out the application forms online. You will need to print and send us the completed forms. There is a one-time fee of $1.00 for this service. The fee will be deducted from the first money we collect.
Full Child Support Services - This application is for parents to set-up a new child support order, enforce an existing order, or to modify an existing order.
Before the custodial parent can begin to receive payments, other steps may need to be taken (such as paternity establishment, locating the other parent, etc.). Once you submit this application a child support caseworker will be in contact to help you through any additional steps based on you and your family's needs (see Establish an Order for Child Support, Enforcement, or Modify an Order).
