Child Support Enforcement
The goal of the Domestic Relations Office is to enhance the quality of life for children in El Paso County by monitoring, collecting and enforcing child support and medical support obligations. We care about you and your child, and are actively engaged in the continuous improvement of our processes through collaborative efforts with our internal and external stakeholders to maximize the collection of court-ordered child support in El Paso County.
The goal of Integrated Child Support System is to monitor and enforce cases from 2013 forward that have been filed in El Paso County and have established child support and/or medical support. This program allows our office to intercept tax refunds, issue passport denials, license suspensions, and other administrative remedies including modifications of child support without having to appear in court.
The primary goal of this unit is to see that these persons remain in compliance with the orders of the court and when they are not, to refer the case back to court for appropriate action. CSU provides the Family District Courts with an effective statutory method of both monitoring and enforcing court orders and is a cost saving alternative to incarceration.
Access and Possession
The goal of Access and Possession is to get you out of litigation as soon as possible. We accomplish that by opening the lines of communication early in the legal process to assist you in learning how to share time with your children. That is one of the reasons we offer access coordination at no charge.
Family Court Services
Family Court Services assists parents in minimizing conflict during litigation, provides tools for co-parenting after the case is resolved, and offers neutral assessment and fact finding for the family law courts.
