Following the entry of a child support order, the recipient of support has the option of receiving payment directly from the payor or through collection by the county child support office. Most recipients find the services offered by their local child support collection agency very beneficial. Child support officers not only collect monthly support payments through wage withholding, but they also pursue unpaid support (arrears) with the assistance of the county attorney.

The Minnesota Department of Human Services has established a link to every child support office in the State of Minnesota. Visit the link here to obtain contact information about the child support office in your county.
