About Child Support Services

The Georgia Department of Human Services, Division of Child Support Services (DCSS) shoulders a great responsibility in bettering the lives of over 624,000 Georgia children. DCSS is the division within DHS that enhances the well being of children by locating Non Custodial Parents, establishing paternity, support orders, enforcing and modifying support obligations, collecting and distributing child support payments.  This program promotes parent accountability and self sufficiency while reducing the public’s responsibility for providing financial and medical support to children. DCSS also administers several Outreach Programs to include but not limited to Fatherhood, Strategic Outreach and Program Solving Court all devoted to increasing non-custodial parental involvement in the child’s life.
