  • Social Services: The County Boards of Social Services; sometimes known as welfare agencies, handle child support cases. The agencies work to find non-custodial parents, establish paternity and file complaints with the courts for child support and paternity. They also provide help with cash assistance (Work First New Jersey), food assistance (SNAP), child care, Medicaid, employment services and other local assistance programs.
  • Family Court: The county Family Courts schedule, conduct, record and keep track of court hearings and orders in a child support case, including issues of custody and visitation.
  • Probation: The county Probation Divisions monitor money due and paid for child support and help make sure the support continues getting paid through various enforcement efforts, if necessary.
