The Child Support Enforcement Office is a division of the Buchanan County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. We are a team of 13 staff and a primary Assistant Prosecutor that handle all of our daily functions. We provide help to parents and children by providing the following services:
- Establishing paternity;
- Establishing orders for child support and health insurance;
- Enforcing orders for child support and health insurance;
- Modifying orders for child support and health insurance.
- Location services, and
- Criminal prosecution of non-custodial parents who fail to provide support.
Our small staff provide consistent work and dedication, which helps our office collect millions of dollars each year for the children of our community. Regular child support payments reduce child poverty, promote parental responsibility and involvement, and improve children’s educational outcomes.
