What Is Child Support?
Not everyone is aware of the child support program and the services provided. The federal Office of Child Support Enforcement created an informational video to share with parents and partners. It provides a glimps of the most common child support services that parents will typically use and provides general advice.
For an overview of Ohio's Child Support enrollment options and resources available to custodial parents:
Ohio Child Support Customer Service Web Portal
The Ohio Child Support Customer Service Web Portal is Ohio's web-based application which provides customers easy on-demand access to their case information, currently on file with the Child Support agency. Once registered, customers may quickly and conveniently view personal, address, employment and health insurance information, along with support order and payment information (two years of support payment information may be viewed and printed). Customers can also send messages to their county Child Support agency, as well as request updates to their address, employment and/or health insurance information by using the portal's Message Center.
Ohio Child Support Interactive Voice Response (IVR) System
The IVR system is the phone-in telephone response system for the Ohio Child Support Program. The IVR system provides information on payments and balances.

Easy Child Support Payment Options
The Marion County Child Support Enforcement Agency is committed to providing quality services to families through assisting in establishing paternity, establishing and enforcing child support orders and collecting and disbursing child support payments.
Children benefit when both parents work together in taking care of their emotional and financial and medical needs. Children do not lose this right, or need it any less if their parents live apart.
Be In touch! Parents are many times a great source of information. If you have location and employment information for the other parent, please share this information with the CSEA.
