Statewide— Indiana’s Child Support Program will spread the word about its support of Hoosier families this August in recognition of Child Support Awareness Month.
The month-long celebration gives program coordinators an opportunity to provide information about services and connect with the community. The public is encouraged to celebrate by wearing something green, the official color for the kickoff of Child Support Awareness Month, on Monday, August 3.
The child support program is administered by the Child Support Bureau of the Indiana Department of Child Services. Custodial parties or non-custodial parents may enroll at no cost at their county prosecutor’s office.
The Child Support Program provides a number of services to assist in getting child support dollars to families, including:
• Locating non-custodial parents
• Establishing paternity
• Establishing and modifying child support and medical support orders
• Enforcing payment of child support
