The Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA) was created by State law on January 1, 1988 and operates in every Ohio county. In Clinton County, the CSEA operates under the administration of the County Department of Job & Family Services.
The CSEA is a IV-D (4D) agency. IV-D stands for the Title IV-D of the Social Security Act of 1974. This is the legislation that set up the State Child Support collection program.
Who Can We Help?
The Clinton County CSEA automatically helps families receiving Ohio Works First (OWF) cash assistance or Medicaid. If you are receiving OWF, child support will be assigned to the State to reimburse the State for the public assistance you receive.
Individuals not receiving OWF cash assistance who reside in Clinton County can also receive our services by simply completing a IV-D (4D) application. To receive a IV-D application, call 937-382-5726. The application fee has been waived and there is no charge for our services.
