One of the highest priorities at the Florida Department of Revenue Child Support Program is protecting your information. Please know that the Program will never call or email you to ask for your personal information, unless a team member is working on your child support case and needs to clarify information that has been previously requested or provided by you. The Program will never call to ask you for your credit card information or credit card payments.
If you visit a Child Support office, you will need to bring a photo ID or be prepared to provide other information about yourself to verify your identity. If you call the Child Support Program, we will ask you to verify information such as your name, Social Security number, date of birth, mailing address, email and phone number to assist you further.
Remember, the main phone numbers for the Child Support Program are on the Program’s
Contact page. Emails from the Department will always come from an email address ending in @floridarevenue.com.
Beginning January 1, 2018, parents will receive a Title IV-D Standard Parenting Time Plan with their administrative packet when the Department is establishing paternity or establishing or modifying a child support order. To learn more about parenting time plans, visit the
Parenting Time Plans page.
