Stark County Child Support Enforcement
The Child Support Enforcement Division provides children with the opportunity for a better life. By working with both parents to establish and enforce support orders, the Child Support Program helps children receive the financial and medical support ordered for them.
Child support makes a real difference in managing food, shelter, clothing, medical and dental expenses. In addition, some researchers have found a correlation between consistent child support and improved school attendance, higher grade point averages and reduced teen pregnancy and delinquency rates. Children need the emotional and financial support of both parents. Ohio’s child support program touches more children than any other program in Ohio except public education.
