FAQ-Frequently Asked Questions:
If you have a child support case, that case is monitored and/or enforced by either the Court Trustee in the county in which the court made the order, or by the Department of Children and Families (DCF). For the 23rd and 24th judicial districts (Ellis, Rooks, Trego, Gove, Rush, Pawnee, Edwards, Hodgeman, Ness and Lane counties) any cases that are not DCF are Court Trustee. If a custodial parent or child is receiving cash assistance (TANF), food stamps, a child is in foster care, or the custodial parent AND child is receiving medical assistance, the case would be overseen by DCF case. You may contact them at 888-757-2445 or visit their website here. If only the child is receiving medical assistance or the custodial parent is not receiving any assistance, the case is most likely a court trustee case. Some exemptions apply.
