The Child Support Division is part of the County Prosecutor's Office. It was established pursuant to Title IV-D of the Social Security Act in order to provide child support and paternity establishment services. Mandatory participation is required of parents whose families receive TANF or Medicaid. However, services are available to all parents whether they are receiving these public benefits or not. We have approximately 3,000 cases.

The Hendricks County Child Support Office provides the following services:

  • Establishing paternity
  • Establishing and enforcing support orders.
  • Establishing and enforcing medical support orders.
  • Location of non-custodial parents.
  • Reviewing and modifying support orders.
  • Collecting current and past due support.
