Kansas Child Support

Kansas Child Support Services (KCSS)

“Child Support Services has partnered with four contractors to provide full-service child support functions.

Kansas Child Support Services (CSS) helps children receive the financial support necessary for their growth and development. The program assists by establishing parentage and orders for child and medical support, locating noncustodial parents and their property, enforcing child and medical support orders, and modifying support orders as appropriate.

CSS automatically serves families receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Food Assistance, foster care, and child care assistance. Assistance from CSS is also available to any family regardless of income or residency, who applies for our services.

For more information view the Kansas CSS Handbook or visit the Federal Office of Child Support Enforcementwebsite.” — KCSS

Overview

If you are a noncustodial parent in Kansas, you are responsible for paying child support. Child support is the money that a noncustodial parent pays to help cover the costs of their child’s upbringing. In Kansas, child support is calculated based on the income of both parents, the number of children, and the custody arrangement.

If you are behind on your child support payments, you may be subject to enforcement actions by the Kansas Department of Revenue.

Kansas child support laws are designed to ensure that children have the financial support of both parents. This means that even if you are not the custodial parent, you are still responsible for paying child support. Kansas Child Support Services can help you with questions about your child support obligation, making payments, and enforcing child support orders.
