Child Support

                                                         COURTHOUSE UPDATE

As of July 1, 2020, the Iowa County Courthouse is open for court appearances only.  The child support office is closed to the public but is open during normal business hours and you can reach us by mail or telephone. 

There is a drop box on the North side of the Courthouse on Chapel Street.  It is across from the BMO Harris Bank in the alcove by the dumpsters.  To use the drop box, make sure you use an envelope and address it to Child Support.  In addition, follow up with a phone call to the agency to alert us that you put an envelope in the drop box.  The drop box is checked 3 times per day

If you are scheduled for court, you are to call the Clerk of Court’s office at 608-935-0395 and request to be joined to your hearing OR log in via Zoom.  The information for Zoom was provided on the court hearing notice unless it stated your appearance in court is required.

Please call the agency with any questions regarding any upcoming child support hearings.
