OCSE is the federal government agency that oversees the national child support 
program.Under the leadership of Commissioner Scott Lekan, we help child support 
agencies in states and tribes develop, manage, and operate their programs according 
to federal law using effective child support enforcement tools. OCSE does not provide services directly to families. We partner with state, tribal and local child support agen-
cies and others to encourage parental responsibility so that children receive financial, emotional, and medical support from both parents, even when they live in separate households. Offers a great deal of good information on their website!
