Virginia's children need both financial and family support to grow and thrive. Children with actively involved parents perform better in school, have high self-confidence and generally achieve greater success in life.

The Division of Child Support Enforcement (DCSE) is committed to helping parents support their children by focusing on more than just money. DCSE offers free family engagement services focusing on access and visitation, responsible parenting, employment services and prisoner reentry.

We strive to support parents who are receiving support and parents who are paying support.

Call our Customer Service Center, 1-800-468-8894 toll-free.
