Economic Impact Stimulus Payments: With the May 2020 and subsequent issued Stimulus Payments, delinquent child support will NOT be taken from the actual Stimulus Payment.   However, if you have not received your stimulus check and plan to take the credit on your filed tax forms, any refund that you are due, will be intercepted for past-due child support.


Under contract with the Department of Children and Families (DCF), the Dane County Child Support Agency provides assistance to establish paternity, establish support orders and enforce child support and health insurance. Our agency is comprised of dedicated individuals who handle over 28,000 open cases. Dane County Child Support Agency is one of 71 county and 10 tribal child support agencies in Wisconsin. We work in conjunction with the State, local courts and many outside partner agencies to meet the needs of the families that we serve.
