Child Support /
Paternity Services

The civil division attorneys, working closely with the Scott County Child Support Office, bring legal proceedings in District Court and in the Expedited Child Support Process to establish paternity, obtain court ordered child support and enforce support orders. Anyone can apply for these services, even if public assistance is not being expended, by submitting an application to the Scott County Child Support Office.
