“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.” — DCS


If you are a non-custodial parent in Indiana, you are required to pay child support. The Indiana child support guidelines use a formula to determine the amount of child support that the non-custodial parent will owe. The Support Guidelines take into account both the income of the non-custodial parent and the number of children that they are responsible for.

If the non-custodial parent fails to make child support payments, they may be subject to enforcement actions. Enforcement actions can include wage garnishment, interception of tax refunds, and denial of passports. The support guidelines provide for a variety of enforcement actions that can be taken in order to ensure that child support is paid.

The child support guidelines are designed to ensure that children receive the financial support that they need from their non-custodial parents. If you are a non-custodial parent in Indiana, it is important to understand your obligations under the child support guidelines. Check out our resources and child support calculator below.

Are Your Additional Expenses Being Managed?

Did you know that state systems only manage base child support payments & do not provide a way for parents to manage transactions & make payments for additional child expenses such as medical, education, child care or any other child-related expenses? Even if you have your base payments coming thru the state you need a solution to manage, track & pay all your child expenses – while providing a complete history & record.

SupportPay was built to help parents manage all child support & expenses while working with state payment systems.
