Child Support

About Us

Lafayette County Child Support Agency

The Child Support Agency administers the State of Wisconsin’s Child Support Program for Lafayette County consistent with those federal mandates found in the Title IV-D of the Social Security Act and state mandates found in Wisconsin Statute Sections 49.22 and 59.53(5) and (6). The Agency is responsible for:

  • Establishment of paternity, collection of birthing costs and genetic tests;
  • Establishment, enforcement and collection of court orders for the payment of child support and health insurance;
  • Establishment and enforcement of interstate child support and paternity cases;
  • Locating absent parents; and enforcement and collection of foster care/substitute care orders.

The Agency provides such services to those parents and legal custodians of children who apply for and receive public assistance benefits from the State of Wisconsin and other states. The Agency also provides such services to those parents and legal custodians who apply for child support services yet receive no public assistance benefits. Some examples of collection and enforcement activities include processing of income withholding notices, intercepting income tax refunds and unemployment benefits, seizing accounts, garnishing per capita payments, reviewing and/or modifying court orders, adjusting financial accounts and taking administrative, civil, and criminal legal actions necessary to enforce child support orders.
