What is the Title IV-D Child Support Program?

Title IV-D of the Federal Social Security Act requires states to provide child support services.  In Indiana, the Title IV-D Child Support Program is administered by the Department of Child Services (DCS) and the Child Support Bureau (CSB).  Title IV-D is carried out locally by the county prosecutor’s office, the office of the county clerk, and the courts.

Who is eligible for Title IV-D Services?

Custodial parents, non-custodial parents, and legal guardians can apply for child support services regardless of their income level.

What services can the Prosecutor’s Office provide?

The Child Support Program provides parents and legal guardians with assistance in obtaining financial support and medical insurance coverage for their children by locating parents, establishing paternity, establishing and maintaining support orders, and collecting and distributing child support payments.
