Child Support Enforcement Program

The Kickapoo Child Support Enforcement (KCSE) program became a comprehensive child support program meeting federal guidelines in November, 2008. The KSCE program provides paternity establishment, establishment of support orders and enforcement of existing support orders, as well as modification of support orders. To be eligible for the program one of the child/children must be enrolled with a federally recognized tribe, or have lived within the Kickapoo Tribe in Kansas 1854 treaty boundaries.

Your application will be reviewed to assure it meets jurisdiction requirements. If not met KCSE will gladly refer you to another agency to assist you. An application for services is attached below. The KCSE staff is available to assist you in the completion of the application for service and will be happy to answer your questions about the KCSE program.
*Note – please list only children with the same mother and father on one application.
