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.
