Summit County Child Support Enforcement Agency

The Summit County Child Support Enforcement Agency is located at 175 South Main Street in downtown Akron. There is now a payment center on the first floor to the right as you enter the building.

The payment center provides a safe and convenient way to ask questions or make a payment on your case. After the paid transaction be sure that you receive your printed out receipt. Keep this receipt for your records just in case you ever need it down the line.

You can also contact your case worker and ask to receive a copy of your payment history for the past several years. Simply call or email your case manager to request this information.

We encourage that you do this once a year. This way you will always be prepared in the event you need to prove that a certain payment was made.

The child support enforcement system also provides client assistance via email. You can now email your case worker 24 hours a day 7 days a week about your child support circumstance. This is a great system that is not available in some states.

It’s a very convenient way to communicate with your case manager. It also eliminates any mis-communication because everything is documented in the email conversation. If you wish to obtain your case workers email address simply call Summit County CSEA toll-free at: 1.800.726.2765.

One of the best things you can do is stay in good communication with CSEA regarding your case and situation. If you have an address or employment change make sure to let them know right away.

This will ensure that there are no delays in you receiving payment if you are the residential parent. If you are the non-custodial parent this will ensure you are paying the correct amount of child support according to the state guidelines.

Always remember that you and CSEA work in partnership together. They have a job to do, and you must do your part as well. You have a right to be informed so never be afraid to contact the enforcement agency with any questions or concerns you may have.

They are there to help, but you must stay active and involved with your case. For more information on Summit County child support and the Akron clerk of courts view the info below.
