FAQs: 
How do I file for child support?
  1. Apply online and pay the $25 fee by credit card, money order or personal check. If you receive benefits from Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) or Medicaid, you can apply for free.
  2. Find the parent who doesn't have custody. Where does that parent live and work?
  3. If you're a mother, confirm that the father is legally recognized as a parent. If you aren't sure who your child's father is, Child Support Services will help you set up an appointment for genetic testing.
  4. File a support order.
