Washington Child Support

The Child Support Enforcement (CSE or IV-D) Program

is a joint Federal & State effort to help families establish paternity (when necessary), obtain orders for payment of child support, and secure compliance with child support court orders. One of the goals of the Child Support Enforcement Program is to help families achieve self-sufficiency because the non-payment of child support is a key factor contributing to the impoverishment of children.

Washington Child Support Overview

The Washington Child Support Program provides many services to custodial and non-custodial parents including:

  •  Establishing paternity
  •  Obtaining child support orders
  •  Enforcing child support payments
  •  Locating non-custodial parents

Washington Child Support Enforcement also offers several programs to help non-custodial parents meet their financial obligations including:

  •  The Washington State Child Support Payment Center
  •  The Washington State Employer Incentive Program
  •  The Washington State Financial Incentive Program for Low-Income Non-Custodial Parents

The Division of Child Support in Washington State is a part of the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services. The Division of Child Support works in partnership with the federal government and other state agencies to establish paternity, obtain child support orders, and enforce child support payments.

The Washington Child Support Payment Center (WCSPC) is a service of the Washington State Division of Child Support. The WCSPC is a centralized payment processing center for child support payments in Washington. The WCSPC accepts payments from non-custodial parents via check, money order, cashier’s check, or credit card, and processes these payments for distribution to custodial parents.

The Washington State Employer Incentive Program (WEIP) is a program that provides financial incentives to Washington state employers who hire non-custodial parents who are behind on their child support payments. The WEIP is a joint effort of the Washington State Division of Child Support and the Washington State Employment Security Department.

The Washington State Financial Incentive Program for Low-Income Non-Custodial Parents (FIP) is a program that provides financial assistance to low-income non-custodial parents who are behind on their child support payments. The FIP is administered by the Washington State Division of Child Support.
