Family Support Registry

The Family Support Registry (FSR) is Colorado’s centralized collection and disbursement unit for processing child support and maintenance payments. Federal law requires each state to operate a unit like this.


The FSR also handles payment-related activities, such as:

  • Address changes
  • Payment inquiries
  • Requests for printed payment records

Local courts are responsible for legal aspects of support and/or maintenance orders, such as custody changes and changing support and/or maintenance amounts. Contact the Colorado court where the order was entered for questions related to these issues.
