Interactive Map: State by State—How to Change a Child Support Order


Providing child support is a legal financial obligation that many individuals with young children face when returning home after incarceration. This obligation can be a barrier to successfully reentering the community, particularly when individuals are struggling to find a job or establish financial stability. This interactive map from the Office of Child Support Enforcement provides information on every state and U.S. territory to help parents understand their state’s child support review and modification process, and how to change a child support order. Using this map, individuals returning home with child support orders can connect with local and state child support agencies to understand the modification options available in their area.
