Beginning October 1st, many child support customers will see a new fee withheld from their child support payments.

Child Support Services, a division of the Oklahoma Department of Human Services, will charge 3%, up to $10 per month, on child support collections. 

The new fee is expected to generate about $1 million this year and is one of several measures taken by DHS to balance its FY 2018 budget.

Custodial persons currently receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or SoonerCare (Medicaid) will be excluded from the fee.
