Does the Office for Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) Charge An Application Fee For Its Services?

There is no fee if you are currently receiving Transitional Employment Assistance (TEA) or IV­E Foster Care. Your case is automatically referred to OCSE if there is a noncustodial parent. If you are not currently receiving public assistance then there is a non­refundable fee of $25 to process your application and open your case. A separate application plus $25 is required for each noncustodial parent. Applications are available at your local Arkansas Office of Child Support Enforcement or you may call (501) 682­8398 for an application.
