Child Support Services

The Child Support office is a division of the Cabarrus County Department of Social Services. It is sometimes referred to as the IV-D program.

The Child Support agency can assist in locating non-custodial parents, establishing paternity for children born out of wedlock, establishing a child support order, collecting child support payments, and enforcing child support obligations. Depending on applicant’s income, there is either a $10.00 or $25.00 application fee for these services.

The Child Support program is not authorized to help with issues such as custody, visitation or property settlements. A private attorney is needed to discuss these concerns.
