Apply for Services

We are here to help you as you set up a child support order, establish parentage or make sure an existing order is enforced. Unlike private attorneys, the Colorado Child Support Services (CSS) Program can help enforce child support orders through credit reporting, tax and payment intercepts, driver’s license/recreational license suspensions and more.  

CSS supervises the state’s child support system. However, each Colorado county manages individual child support cases based on state requirements and county guidelines. County child support offices in Colorado require an application to begin a child support case.

It’s easier than ever for Colorado families to apply for, and receive, child support services.

There are several ways to apply for child support services — but applying online is the fastest, easiest method. 

APPLY ONLINE NOW

As you complete your application, you will be asked to provide information about yourself and the other parent. Providing as much information as possible will help us establish and enforce your child support order. If you do not know the answers to the questions, or do not have the information, leave the fields blank. You can discuss your specific situation with your county child support caseworker.

If you need to pause and come back to your application at a later date, you can create an online account. Your application will be saved in our system for 60 days.
