The mission of the Child Support Enforcement Division of the Department of Revenue (CSE) is to make a difference in the lives of children by enforcing the financial responsibilities of parenthood. CSE’s core functions are to establish paternity, and establish, enforce and modify child support and health insurance orders.

CSE works with parents to establish paternity and collect any child support or health insurance payments. In Massachusetts, the Probate and Family Court, using Guidelines it established, determines the amount of child support and medical payments that are provided to the custodial parent on behalf of the child. CSE’s role is to enforce orders in cases where the custodial parent and/or child are receiving public assistance, where either the custodial parent or noncustodial parent applies for CSE services, and upon another state’s request. All child support that is paid through income withholding must come through CSE. CSE collaborates with state agencies and private entities, including the Probate and Family Court, the Departments of Transitional Assistance, Children and Families, Public Health, the Divisions of Medical Assistance and Employment and Training, workforce development agencies, social service providers, employers, financial institutions, insurance companies, pension boards, criminal justice and corrections agencies, and community-based organizations.
