You will also find links to Pennsylvania’s Child Support website where you can apply for support, locate your local Domestic Relations Section (DRS), and many other helpful actions, as well as find numerous resources that Pennsylvania offers to individuals wanting to know more about our nationally-recognized Child Support Program.

The DRAP website offers further guidance under the Help for Families page. Information such as the Child Support Handbook, the child support estimator, and access to the Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement, and more are included here.  Using these tools provides answers to many of the commonly asked general questions about PA child support as well as a more in-depth explanation of the child support process.
