Child Support-- Frequently Asked Questions

1. What if I think I do not owe past-due child support?

You should compare your payment history with your own records to determine if past-due support amount is accurate. You can get a copy of your payment history from Child Support Online Services (childsupport.wisconsin.gov) or you may obtain a copy of your payment records by calling the KIDS Information Line—1-800-991-5530, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you think there is an error, contact the child support agency to discuss the possible reasons for the discrepancy.
