If you are receiving TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) DSS will automatically apply for child support services to you. Through the South Carolina Department of social Services Division (CSSD), any parent who has physical custody and needs help obtaining child support may apply for services.  A non-custodial parent may apply to have paternity established. If you are not receiving TANF, you are charged $25.00 a year after $500.00 in child support has been collected.
