Closing Your DCF Case
CLOSING YOUR CASE WITH THE DEPARTMENT FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES (DCF)
YoungWilliams, the contractor for the Kansas Department for Children and Families, Child Support Services, automatically enforces your Douglas County child support case if you receive certain services. These services are cash assistance (TANF), foster care, child care assistance, food assistance, and family medical assistance. When you stop receiving these services, the DCF contractor will continue to enforce your child support case unless you request case closure. If you are no longer receiving services and you prefer to use the enforcement services of the Douglas County District Court Trustee, you can make a request in writing to DCF to close your case. (letter requesting case closure) Upon receiving your letter, DCF will have a notice of termination of assignment filed with the court. Once that notice is filed, the Douglas County District Court Trustee can start enforcing your child support case.
Please contact the Douglas County District Court Trustee regarding your individual situation BEFORE deciding to close your DCF child support enforcement case.
