Mission Statement

The Racine County Child Support Department is committed to serving the citizens of Racine County in assisting with the establishment of paternity and the collection of child support in an efficient, positive manner. For these participants, it is our goal to provide the best customer service, information sharing and partnership building with the resources we have available. We strive to resolve child support and paternity issues while preserving the family structure by emphasizing communication and cooperation between the parties. We provide services to custodial parents, non-custodial parents, and most importantly, the children of our community. We represent the State of Wisconsin and the public interest on behalf of our children who need love and child support.

The Racine County Child Support Department is here to serve the parents and children of Racine County through a cooperative partnership of understanding, compassion and support.

The services offered by Child Support are financially directed and include assisting in the establishment of paternity, and monitoring Child Support collections in a reasonable and efficient manner.

Not all aspects of Child Support activity is processed through the Child Support Program. Federal regulations for Child Support require that for individuals to be eligible for Child Support services, the children have either had, or currently are receiving some form of Public Aide including W-2 and Medical Assistance. Child Support cases where children are currently in foster/substitute care also qualify for Child Support Services. If you do not qualify in one of the above categories, the Racine County Child Support Department will charge a $35.00 fee to process any wage assignment for all new or newly modified Non IV-D support orders. The fee shall be remitted to the Child Support Department at the time the order is submitted for processing, and no service will be provided until the processing fee has been paid. In the alternative, you may elect to submit an application for IV-D services. This alternative would serve as a waiver to all future fees due on future wage assignment processing, and provide complete IV-D services to the applicant.

The Child Support Department currently has in excess of 25,000-child support cases with financial obligations. It is our goal to provide the best customer service possible. The staff will make every effort to insure all services available to you are delivered promptly and with clear and concise information and direction.

The success of our Child Support services are dependent on the cooperation we receive from everyone involved in your case. Accurate and reliable information is vital to process your child support service needs effectively.
