OREGON STATE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE
DIVISION OF CHILD SUPPORT
The Division of Child Support establishes paternity at the request of fathers or mothers, issues initial child support orders, modifies existing child support orders, enforces existing child support orders, interfaces with the state agency that tracks the collection of child support orders, and answers clients' questions about their cases. The office represents the State of Oregon and not the parent.

The Oregon Child Support Program has mediators throughout Oregon who are able to offer assistance developing parenting plans. A parenting plan is a written agreement between parents. It defines when a child will be with each parent (parenting time) and how decisions about the child will be made. It is used when parents are not living together. Sometimes parents agree about these issues and write their own plans, while others use the help of a mediator or attorney. A parenting plan may also be ordered by a judge after a trial or hearing. Safety Focused Parenting Plans are also available.
Confidential Address
Eligibility: Child support services are available to both custodial and non-custodial parents. Even if the other parent is living in another state, you can apply for services in Oregon. Caretakers or relatives who have physical custody of a child may also be entitled to child support services.

Parents with an open child support case in Oregon who do not currently have a parenting plan, agreement, or a court order addressing parenting time qualify for free mediation to establish the agreement.
