Dane County Child Support Agency
Under contract with the Department of Children and Families (DCF), the Dane County Child Support Agency provides assistance to establish paternity, establish support orders and enforce child support and health insurance. Our agency is comprised of dedicated individuals who handle over 28,000 open cases. Dane County Child Support Agency is one of 71 county and 10 tribal child support agencies in Wisconsin. We work in conjunction with the State, local courts and many outside partner agencies to meet the needs of the families that we serve.
New Phone System Announcement
We are excited to announce that we have updated our phone system for easier access to your caseworker. When calling our office, (608) 266-4031, listen carefully to the NEW options. The contact page or the site notification has more information about the options. Caseworkers have 3 days to return your phone call, so there is no need to call back to follow up.
How to Check on Payment Status
The State of Wisconsin has created several outstanding resources to check on your child support payments 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. That is why Dane County Child Support no longer provides payment information over the phone. Please use one of the listed payment resources available to you to manage your account balances, court order summary and payments made or received.

Understanding Child Support
OCSE NEW WEBPAGE ‘UNDERSTANDING CHILD SUPPORT’ The Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) has launched a new webpage, Understanding Child Support, to help parents find basic child support information. This web content replaces the hard copy and PDF Child Support Handbook.
Not everyone is aware of the child support program and the services we provide. That’s why the federal Office of Child Support Enforcement created an informational video to share with parents and partners. It looks at the most common child support services that parents will typically use and provides general advice to ensure the process goes smoothly.
