Child Support

The Marion County Child Support Enforcement Agency is committed to providing quality services to families through assisting in establishing paternity, establishing and enforcing child support orders and collecting and disbursing child support payments.

Children benefit when both parents work together in taking care of their emotional and financial and medical needs. Children do not lose this right, or need it any less if their parents live apart.


Be In touch! Parents are many times a great source of information. If you have location and employment information for the other parent, please share this information with the CSEA.

Be Informed! Learn all you can about your child support case. Call (740) 387-6688 or (800) 960-5437 or make an appointment to meet with your child support case manager if you would prefer to meet in person. An appointment is not required but recommended to ensure the availability of your case manager.
