Why is paying and receiving child support important?
  • It's good for the children.

Reminder about the $25 Annual Fee

The federal fiscal year begins October 1, 2016 and ends Sept 30, 2017.  Federal law requires the Child Support Recovery Unit to deduct an annual fee of $25 from the family's support payments. This fee is due each fiscal year. Starting with payments made in October, the fee is withheld after $500 in support is sent to the family. If a family has ever (past or current) received public assistance (cash welfare payments) the fee is not withheld.  If you have more than one case, the fee may be deducted from each case. The person paying support gets credit for the full amount paid.

The Cedar Rapids office is closed.  Staff have been relocated and continue to work cases.  Customers may continue to contact the office by phone or any other local office.  For in-office assistance during the closure customers may visit the Davenport or Waterloo child support office.
