Families and Children 

Child Support is financial support designed to assist parents in meeting the expenses involved with their children’s daily care. The parent who pays child support is known as the ‘payer parent,’ while the recipient is known as the ‘payee parent/carer.’


The amount of Child Support is determined by the income of each parent and the living arrangements of the child. The Department of Human Services oversees child support payments.
