Domestic Relations

The Domestic Relations Section (DRS) is a court office that helps parents apply for child support services, establish paternity and support orders, and enforce support orders. 
Child support is money a noncustodial parent pays to a custodial parent to help provide food, clothing and other necessary items for their child.
Child support may include medical support, payment of uncovered medical bills and contributions to child care costs.

The DRS can also help if the noncustodial parent lives in another Pennsylvania county, a different state, or another country.

When applying for child support, a complaint for child support must be filed with the DRS. Please bring as much information with you as possible including the noncustodial parent's name, Social Security number, place of employment, and address. A support conference will then be scheduled to determine the financial obligation.

State and federal laws govern how child support orders are established and enforced.

The DRS also handles spousal support matters.

The DRS does not handle child custody matters.  Please refer to the Custody Department for more information regarding child custody matters.
