If you're an Ohio employer... The Clermont County Division of Child Support welcomes you. This page is dedicated to addressing questions you may have concerning your role in the child support process.
In Ohio, the Child Support Program is state supervised and county administered. The name of the agency administering the program at the county level is the Division of Child Support Enforcement (DCSE).
Why should employers be involved with Child Support?
Complying with this law will benefit all of us:
Income withholding is the most successful and efficient enforcement tool for collecting child support - nearly 73% of all monies collected on behalf of Ohios children is collected directly by employers!
Stable, reliable workforce - when parents know their children are provided with the necessities of life and well cared for, the result is less absenteeism and higher productivity on the job.
Taxpayer savings - the New Hire Reporting program will reduce government spending on welfare by increasing child support collections for families who would otherwise be forced to seek public assistance.
Healthy children - children who might otherwise not be covered under a medical insurance plan can receive vital and preventative medical attention if they are receiving medical support through an employees medical plan.
Fraud detection - Ohio can use new hire information to detect erroneous unemployment, disability, and workers compensation benefit payments and erroneous receipt of public assistance payments.
A stronger sense of community - the bonds that form or are strengthened between a non-custodial parent and a child when regular financial, medical and emotional support arrives can enrich the entire community.
