Westchester County Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE)
Raising children without full financial support can mean hardship for both the custodial parent and the child. New York State law requires both parents to financially support their children to age 21. This responsibility exists even if a parent leaves the home or has never lived with the child.
The Westchester County Department of Social Services, under the auspices of New York State, has operated an Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) program since 1978. The aim of the program is to get support for all children not being supported by their legally responsible parents.
