The options for starting a child support case are as follows:
A) You can apply for child support services at www.michigan.gov/dhs and choose to apply online at MiChildSupport (see "Quick Links" on FOC main page), or complete and mail the "IV-D Child Support Services Application/Referral" form DHS-1201
B) If paternity has been established, a Custody Packet is available at no cost at our Central Filing Office. The packet contains all the forms needed to start a case.
C) You may contact an attorney for case-establishment assistance.
