Child support enforcement in South Carolina falls under the Child Support Enforcement Division. The fee for this service is $25 but free for families on public assistance. The $25 fee is only accrued when $500 or more is recovered for the custodial parent. The CSED can help to establish paternity, locate out of state non-custodial parents and order hearings to determine child support payments. Some custody payments may be used to repay public benefits granted to the custodial parent.
