Child Support Division

The Prosecutor’s Office, Child Support Division, in conjunction with the Department of Human Services, establishes Paternity and/or child support obligations for families in Calhoun County. The Prosecutor’s Office represents the State of Michigan in these matters and not any particular individual party.

In Michigan both parents owe a duty to support their children.  It doesn’t matter if the absent parent resides in the State of Michigan or outside the State of Michigan.

We assist families, who receive public assistance and/or those who request our services by filing a Non-Public Assistance Application (Form #1201).  Any person can obtain this form from the Department of Human Services (Toeller Building) or the Calhoun County Friend of the Court office.
