The Division of Child Support Services (DCSS) is here to help. Below are links to several different services offered by DCSS to assist custodial parents, as well as non-custodial parents.
8/6/2020 - DCSS is happy to report that we received the long awaited guidance from the Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) related to the Economic Impact Payments (stimulus payments) sent in error. We will start the process of releasing holds on the payments on or about Monday, August 3st. We will be releasing of the held payments starting with the payments received in May and working through June’s and July’s.
Please know payments on hold related to “joint spouse” filings have been extended. The standard six-month hold placed on all jointly filed federal tax refunds and Economic Impact Payments has been extended by an additional three months. This extension was granted to allow time for the processing of tax refunds and stimulus payment reversals affected by joint returns recently issued by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)
4/21/2020 - The Delaware Division of Child Support understands that it may be tough to pay your court ordered child support during these difficult times of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please remember that child support is a court ordered judgement and we do not have the ability to stop your order. While the division is sympathetic to your situation, we will try and help you as much as possible during these difficult times. On our Facebook page we post employment opportunities several times a week. While it may not be the job you have or want, until you are able to return to your pre-COVID employment, it offers an opportunity to earn money to keep your child support order current. We have an online payment service called iPayOnline in which you can make payments without having to drive to an office and make a physical payment. Our Customer Service Unit is available to assist you, 8am - 4pm Monday through Friday. We appreciate your patience as it may take a little longer than normal to get through to a Child Support Specialist during this crisis, but we are doing our best to address all calls as timely as possible.
