Child Support Services (CSS)

parent and child icon

Overview

Every child deserves emotional, medical and financial support from both parents. Together, we will establish parentage, financial and medical support, and enforce the child support order. Child Support Services (CSS) works with you to identify resources that can address barriers to paying child support. Resources include parenthood programming, workforce readiness, access to mental health services, and more.

CSS is available in-person and online. We can also answer any questions you may have by phone at 720-944-2960. Click on the box below for locations, addresses and hours:
