Support Services
The Child Support Division establishes and enforces child support obligations on behalf of participants in the IV-D child support program. Our office represents the State of Indiana in these matters, and the child’s interest in receiving appropriate financial support. We cannot offer advice regarding parenting time or child custody issues, or assist anyone with legal proceedings relating to these matters. 

Applying for Services
A parent or any other person (for example, a grandparent, aunt, or uncle) acting as a custodian of a child may apply for IV-D support services. Applications for services are taken in person in our office in Brownstown, located near the north end of the block opposite the main entrance to the Jackson County Courthouse. 

The State of Indiana charges a non-refundable $25 fee to apply for services. That fee is waived if the child receives Medicaid or TANF benefits. Your case may be automatically referred to us if you apply for TANF or Medicaid benefits for a child. You may contact our office at (812) 358-6129 for additional information concerning documents or other items you must provide to us when applying for services to assist us in handling your case.
