Child Support Services

Child Support Services is authorized and defined by statute Title IV–D of the Social Security Act. The legal duty to support a minor child belongs to both parents, even if the custodial parent is capable of caring for the child single-handedly. Child support is intended to provide for the child’s basic needs and to allow the child to share in the standard of living of both parents. The non-custodial parent may be either the mother or the father. All states run a child support enforcement program, usually through the Department of Human Services, Department of Revenue, or the State Attorney General’s office. Prosecuting attorneys, district attorneys, law enforcement agencies, and officials of family or domestic relations courts may also provide assistance.

The Colorado Child Support Services (CSS) Program oversees the state’s child support system. Individual child support orders are managed by Colorado’s county child support offices. You can find many helpful services on the Colorado CSS website including:
