Pennsylvania Child Support

Pennsylvania Child Support Program (CSP)

Online requests use a series of questions to complete documents to be forwarded to your county Domestic Relations Section (DRS). Requests for support services can be used by parents or caretakers/custodians who want to:

  • Receive child support or spousal support
  • Pay child support or spousal support
  • Modify an existing child or spousal support order
  • Recover an overpayment
  • Withdraw a complaint

Overview

If you are a non-custodial parent in Pennsylvania, you are required to pay child support. The amount of child support you owe is based on your income and the number of children you have.

Pennsylvania Child Support payments help to cover the costs of raising a child, including food, clothing, housing, medical care, and education. Child support payments are intended to provide for a child’s needs, not to punish a parent.

If you are having difficulty making your Pennsylvania Child Support payments, you should contact the Pennsylvania Child Support Enforcement agency. They can help you make arrangements to pay your child support or modify your child support order.

Failure to pay child support can result in wage garnishment, seizure of assets, and even jail time. It is important to take action if you are having difficulty making your child support payments.

If you have any questions about Pennsylvania child support, please contact the Pennsylvania Child Support Enforcement agency. They can help you understand your rights and responsibilities under the law.
