The Department of Justice’s Child Support Unit works with the Division of Child Support Services (’DCSS’) to secure approximately $90 million a year for Delaware children. DOJ attorneys represent the DCSS in establishing, modifying, and enforcing child support orders. The Unit also addresses criminal non-support cases and enforces foreign orders from the other states and various international countries under the Uniform Interstate Child Support Act.
Parents who have questions about child support should contact the Division of Child Support Services. Automated Assistance Lines (AAL) are available toll-free 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, while Child Support Specialists are available Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.:
