Relationships Quick Answers



Where can I find information about the laws and procedures for child support?


U. S. Government Office on Child Support Enforcement
This site includes reports on child support, links to state child support enforcement, newsletters on current issues, guidelines on obtaining child support, and more.

Child Support Network
Child Support Network (CSN) is a specialized service company designed to locate missing parents and collect and enforce court-ordered child support payments. This agency is an alternative to overburdened state child support agencies. CSN is licensed and bonded and is a member of the Child Support Council and the Single Parents Association.

Children's Issues Children's Rights Council (CRC)
CRC is an organization that works to assure a child the frequent, meaningful, and continuing contact with two parents and extended family the child would ideally have during a marriage. This group works to strengthen families through education, favoring family formation and family preservation. Unlike many other organizations with some of the same concerns, CRC is genderless - it is not a women's group nor a men's group. Rather, this group advocates what they believe to be in the best interests of children, including the Children's Bill of Rights.
