ORS/CSS is a federally funded state agency, which means that many of the actions taken by ORS/CSS are regulated and/or mandated by federal and state law. It is every parent`s legal responsibility to support his/her child, whether or not the child`s parents live together. When child support is not being paid, ORS/CSS often becomes involved. A case is opened at ORS/CSS whenever a custodial parent or relative begins receiving public assistance, or when a custodial parent or relative requests ORS/CSS to collect child support. Noncustodial parents may also apply for services. ORS/CSS does not legally represent either parent. Rather, ORS/CSS` role is to collect on behalf of the children.
