Family Support Team
Title IV-D of the Social Security Act established the national program of child support enforcement in 1976; each state is required to designate a single agency to administer the program. The Washington State Division of Child Support (DCS) is the legally designated "Title IV-D Agency" for the State of Washington, and DCS contracts with county prosecuting attorneys to handle the agency child support cases that require action in the superior courts (RCW 74.20.040). For Thurston County, the Family Support Team of the Thurston County Prosecuting Attorney's Office provides a variety of litigation support for DCS. This includes the establishment of paternity, modification of child support orders, and enforcing child support orders.
