An Easier Application, Low-cost Paternity Testing, and Help for Both Dads and Moms
As Virginia’s Division of Child Support Enforcement (DCSE), we know the child support program can be hard to navigate. We have district offices across the state to support our families, make it easier to receive and pay child support, and even offer low-cost paternity testing.
Right now it’s particularly important to remember that DCSE works with dads and moms. We have an easy-to-understand form for requesting essential child support services.
We can also look at you and the other parent’s current income to see whether your child support order should be adjusted—often without going to court. We have programs to help noncustodial parents who have lost a job and can’t pay child support. And we even offer a special process for reducing TANF debt.
