Child Support

Child Support Services was established for the purpose of legally requiring responsible parents to support their children. The program assists individuals with obtaining support from a non-custodial parent for the child to have an economically stable home.


Applications can be taken at DSS or mailed to the office.


If you have questions or would like additional information please contact a Child Support Worker at our office by calling 336-593-2861.



If you are receiving services with our agency such as Medicaid or Work First Family Assistance, there is no fee for you to apply.


If you are not receiving services, the application fee is based on income and the amounts are $10 and $25. That fee is non-refundable and will need to be paid before we open your case.
