Child Support – Applying for Services

Minnesota’s child support enforcement program helps parents establish a financial partnership and helps children receive the financial, medical and child care support they deserve.

Child support agencies help establish paternity, get an order for support, enforce an existing order, collect payments and more.

You can apply for child support services through your county child support agency. You can apply for full child support (IV-D) services, income withholding-only (Non-IV-D) services or withholding for spousal support..

If you receive public assistance such as Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP), Medical Assistance (MA), MinnesotaCare, Diversionary Work Program (DWP), Tribal TANF, Title IV-E Foster Care, or Child Care Assistance, and a parent lives away from your home, you do not need to apply for services. Your county financial worker will automatically refer your case for full child support enforcement services.

You can get an application from your county child support agency or you can get it online. Complete the application and mail it or take it to your county child support agency.
