Collection Services

  • Birth to 3 Cost Share and CLTS Parental Fee Coordination
    We coordinate Dane County’s Birth to 3 Cost Share billing statements and the Children’s Long Term Support Waiver (CLTS) parental fee statements. This includes the collection of family financial information to determine the ability to pay, and also billing and collection of fees due to Dane County for these services. Additional information can be found at the links below:
  • Substitute Care Child Support Fees
    We are mandated by a state law requiring all parents to pay child support whenever their child is placed in substitute care, including group homes, foster homes, child-care institutions, and juvenile corrections. Our department will make recommendations to the court for child support amounts based upon a computation of Wisconsin's Child Support Percentage of Income Standard using the financial disclosure information provided by the parent(s).
