North Carolina Child Support Services (CSS)

“Child Support Services (CSS) are available to anyone who wants or needs help in collecting child support through a network of state and locally run offices.

  • Individuals who receive services through Public Assistance (IV-A) or Foster Care (IV-E) programs are automatically referred for CSS free of charge.
  • Custodial parents in Non-Public Assistance cases can inquire about CSS by telephone and receive an Application and Supplemental Data Sheet to complete, or they can visit any local CSS office.
  • Custodial parents are responsible for paying up to a $25 non-refundable application fee.

The CSS program is not authorized to help with custody, visitation or property settlements.” — NCCSS
