DHS launches mobile app to assist Georgians with child support cases

September 15, 2016

ATLANTA – Today, the Georgia Department of Human Services (DHS) launched a new child support app to assist customers with child support cases on their mobile devices. The GA DCSS mobile app allows customers to make child support payments, review payment history, view scheduled appointments and receive notifications/alerts on important information regarding their cases.

“Children need emotional and financial support from both parents,” said DHS Commissioner Robyn A. Crittenden. “The GA DCSS mobile app gives parents another avenue to meet their child support obligations. Ensuring children in our state are receiving much-needed support from both parents helps build stronger families for a stronger Georgia.”

Georgia will be the first state to make a full-service child support mobile app available to its customers. The GA DCSS app provides self-service options by allowing customers to securely access their child support case on any mobile device. It provides easy access to case details and general information about programs and services provided by DHS Division of Child Support Services (DCSS).

“The mobile app is part of the overall effort in continuing to meet the needs of our customers where they are,” said Tanguler Gray, DCSS director. “Custodial and noncustodial parents are both able to access information or updates on their child support case in the palm of their hands.”

In State Fiscal Year 2016, an estimated $737 million in child support was distributed to more than 551,000 children in Georgia.

The app is available on Apple and Android devices and can be downloaded via the App Store or the Google Play Store. The following keywords can be used to find the app to download:
