About Child Support In Indiana
Every child has the right to the financial support of both parents, whether or not the parents are married or live together in the home with the child. The Indiana Child Support Bureau enforces this right.
What is the Title IV-D Child Support Program?
Title IV-D of the Federal Social Security Act requires every state to provide child support services. This is called the Title IV-D Child Support Program. In Indiana, the Title IV-D Child Support Program is administrated by the Department of Child Services Child Support Bureau, and is carried out locally by the county prosecutor’s office, the office of the county clerk, and the courts.
What does the Child Support Program do?
The Child Support Program is required to do a number of functions to assist in getting child support dollars to families. These functions include:
- Locating non-custodial parents
- Establishing paternity
- Establishing child support and medical support orders
- Enforcing payment of child support
The Child Support Program also reviews child support orders to insure they conform to the Indiana Child Support Rules and Guidelines, disburses child support payments to custodial parties, and assists other states, territories, and tribes in all of these activities. Most of these activities take place through the local county prosecutor’s Title IV-D child support office.
When Does Child Support End In Indiana?
Child support ends in Indiana at 19 years of age; child support ceases when the child turns 21.
