Child Support Enforcement Poster

The Lucas County Division of Child Support Services is committed to serving the families in our community by providing quality child support services through establishing parentage, enforcing support orders and collecting and disbursing child support. Our goal is to ensure that families receive the financial support to which they are entitled.

Please note, our fax number has changed. Our new number is 419-213-8591. Feel free to contact us with any questions.

Due to confidentiality concerns, our staff will no longer be able to give out payment information over the phone.  In order to check the status of a payment, you will need to log in to the Ohio Child Support Web Portal and create an account if you haven't already.
