Child Support Services

Our Mission

Our mission is to empower our families by promoting the sacredness of our children, by reaffirming the shared responsibility of parenting, and by honoring the traditions of the Tribe.

Our Vision

Our vision is for healthy children who are strengthened by the consistent emotional, physical, educational, social, spiritual, cultural, and financial support of their parents and the Meskwaki tribal community.

What We Do

  • Locating absent parents
  • Establishing paternity
  • Establishing child support orders
  • Modification of child support orders
  • Enforcement of child support orders
  • Referral to the Meskwaki Elders Circle and access to community support services
