Applying for Child Support

Application is automatic for any person who receives assistance under the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). If you currently receive TANF and have not been contacted by the Child Support Division you must contact us as soon as possible to ensure continued receipt of your benefits.

All others who are eligible and need assistance with child support must make an application in person with the Child Support Division.  Applications can be picked up in person at the Child Support Division during regular business hours Monday through Friday 8:00 A.M. to 4:30 P.M.  Please bring a $25.00 blank money order or copies of the child/children’s Indiana Medicaid card, and the following information, when returning your application.
