The District of Columbia child support guidelines are used to determine the amount of child support owed by the non-custodial parent.
Children deserve to be financially supported by both of their parents. Currently, the Child Support Services Division (CSSD) has many cases in which the non-custodial parent is not providing medical or financial support to his or her child(ren).
After establishing a case to receive child support, the process of managing a case begins. As each step in the process is completed, the case moves toward the ultimate goal: getting payments for the child(ren).
You may open a child support case by submitting an application form and paying a $5 fee.
