Child Support Enforcement

The mission of the Colorado Child Support Enforcement (CSE) program is to assure that all children receive financial and medical support from both parents. This is accomplished by locating each parent, establishing paternity and support obligations, and enforcing those obligations.

Visit the Colorado Division of CSE website for information on how to start a case, how support payments are calculated, making and receiving payments, and other helpful information.

Obtain and complete an application. Applications can be:
  • Mailed to you
  • Picked up in person at:

There will be a one-time $20 application fee. If you receive Colorado Works / TANF, you will be automatically referred to the CSE office and will not be required to pay an application fee.
