There is a one-time, $25 fee to apply for child support services. DHR waives this fee if you receive Temporary Cash Assistance (TCA) or Medical Assistance. A separate application is required for each case.
In addition to the $25 application fee, certain cases will be charged an annual fee of $25 after you receive $3,500 in payments for that year. Some cases may also be assessed a Federal Tax Offset Fee not to exceed $25 and a State Tax Intercept Fee not to exceed $10. For more information about fees, please review our Frequently Asked Questions.
