The Family Support Division is responsible for establishing and enforcing child support obligations within the County. Four attorneys and eight staff members make up the division. In cooperation with the Washington State Division of Child Support (DCS), the Family Support Division accepts referrals involving the establishment of paternity and reviews and modifies support orders meeting State criteria. The Family Support Division also enforces support obligations through civil contempt actions and appears in privately filed domestic relations cases to protect the State's financial interest when public assistance has been paid on behalf of a child.
