Calculate Child Support Payments

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).

Managing a Case

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).  

Instructions for Requesting a PIN Number

You may open a child support case by submitting an application form and paying a $5 fee. 

Viewing Case Information Online

The Child Support Services Division has an Online Case Lookup (OCL) system that allows customers to access their child support case information over the internet.
