Child Support Online Chat Services

Montgomery County residents can now ask questions, voice concerns and learn more about child support collection and enforcement through a live online chat with Montgomery County’s Department of Job and Family Services.

Although child support cases are confidential by law, the live chat will allow an obligor or obligee to talk privately with the specialist about issues such as a modification, paternity and the review process.

“Live chat is just another way that Child Support can be more accessible and responsive to the hundreds of thousands of people we serve each year,” said Robert Gruhl, assistant director, Child Support Enforcement Division, Montgomery County Department of Job and Family Services.  “We hope by offering a live chat, the wait time on our main phone line can be reduced significantly and people will have easier access to our services.”

The department’s Child Support Enforcement Agency handled 151,358 telephone calls in 2010.  The agency collected more than $101,497,645 in child support last year for families that might not otherwise had the financial means to pay for such items as medical care, food, clothes, school supplies and child care.  Families whose children do not receive child support are often forced to turn to public assistance, with taxpayers providing financial support.
