The Sawyer County Child Support Agency is the local agency designated to administer the child support enforcement program, which is a County effort in conjunction with the State and Federal government to collect child support from noncustodial parents. This effort is to ensure that children are supported financially by their parents and to foster family responsibility. The program is provided for in Title IV-D of the Social Security Act, enacted in 1975, and in the laws of all 50 states. The federal requirements of the state and local child support agencies are contained in the Code of Federal Regulations.

Custody and Visitation

Please keep in mind that matters of legal custody and visitation (physical placement) are separate from the financial support of children. Wisconsin’s Child Support Program has no authority to create or enforce custody or visitation orders, and child support agencies do not handle these matters. Contact Susan Lein, Sawyer County Family Court Commissioner      (715-634-4273) or your attorney for help in settling custody and placement disputes.
