Important Updates

NOTICE TO CHILD SUPPORT CUSTOMERS: The Department of Social Services has limited in-person visits to our field offices as a protective measure for customers and staff. Employees in the Office of Child Support Services (OCSS) Division continue to work remotely a majority of the time.  Limited staff, in each field office, are available to see customers by appointment only.  Walk-ins will not be seen.  For child support questions, or to request child support services, please call or email your local DSS child support office.  Email is the preferred method.  Staff will do their best to respond to your concern within two business days. Thank you for your understanding during these unprecedented times.
