  What We Do

Wood County CSEA offers the following services to all IV-D consumers:

  • Establishment of Paternity
  • Location of Absent Parents
  • Establishment of Child Support and Medical Support Orders
  • Enforcement of Child Support and Medical Support Orders
  • Collection and Disbursement of Support Payments
  • Interstate Collection of Child Support
  • Withholding of Wages and Unearned Income for the Payment of Court-Ordered Support
  • Offset of Federal and State Income Tax Refunds for the Collection of Child Support Arrearages
  • Review and Adjustment of Child Support Orders
  • Education and outreach about the Child Support program and appropriate referrals for Community and Government services.

When providing these services, the Agency (and its contracted agents- prosecutors, attorneys, hearing officers, etc.) represent the best interest of the children of the State of Ohio and do not represent specific Agency customers or the consumer’s personal interests.

If you disagree with the amount of support due, the amount of payments sent to you, or the amount of support sent to the State of Ohio as repayment for public assistance, you may request your case be reviewed by agency staff to ensure the amounts are correct.

You have the right to:

  • Expect due process procedures be observed by the agency in actions that may affect you.
  • Have you or your legal representative review agency records that apply to you.
  • Expect your personal information to be kept confidential by the agency within guidelines set by the State and Federal government.
  • Make written request for an Ohio Department of Job and Family Services state hearing for issues you may disagree with, including denial of services and untimely provision of services.

All individuals served by the Wood County Child Support Enforcement Agency may seek a judicial determination in matters of child support.

Please ask to speak with your Case Manager, an Agency Supervisor, the Assistant Director, or the Agency Director if you have concerns with any of the above matters.
