The Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA) is responsible for administering federal and state Child Support program requirements. Madison County CSEA strives to encourage family stability through accessible, comprehensive, and effective programs. Our staff is dedicated to providing services with knowledge and professionalism in order to enhance the lives of today's children.

Paternity Establishment - Madison County CSEA will establish paternity for a child/ren born out of wedlock. The parties may choose to complete a Paternity Affidavit at the hospital when the child is born or request to have genetic testing done. In most cases paternity can be established by using the administrative process without having to go to court.

Establishment of Support Orders - If a person does not already receive child support, the child's parent, guardian or legal custodian can contact Madison County CSEA for assistance in obtaining an order for the payment of child support and health care for the child(ren).
 

Enforcement of a Court/Administrative Order - Madison County CSEA uses all appropriate legal means available to enforce support issued both judicially and administratively. These actions include Wage Withholding Orders (to income providers such as employers, Unemployment, Social Security, and Workers Compensation), Seek Work, Tax Offset Program, Credit Reporting, Contempt Referrals, FIDM and License Suspensions.
