Child Support Awareness
The Child Support Enforcement Division of the Attorney General’s office works closely with the
Department of Healthcare and Family Services
and other agencies and advocacy organizations to ensure that families throughout the state receive the support they need to raise their children. The Office of the Attorney General, in conjunction with the
Department of Healthcare and Family Services, handles child support enforcement in 89 counties across the state of Illinois.
The work we do in this area is critical to giving children the opportunities they need and deserve. Studies show that children who receive support are more likely to finish high school and even go on to college. By holding accountable those who are required to pay child support, we can improve the lives of Illinois children and create a more stable and successful future for all of us.
