I Do Not Think The Custodial Parent Is Using The Support Money For The Child. What Can Dcse Do?

DCSE does not investigate how child support funds are used. If DCSE becomes aware of suspected child abuse or neglect, the information is provided to the appropriate social services agency in the locality in which the child resides and the local agency then determines what action should be taken. Individuals who are aware of child abuse or child neglect should report that abuse to the local social services agency or in Virginia, call the Child Abuse Hotline, 1­800­552­7096.
