New Child Support Warrant Recall Program available every Friday

CLEVELAND – Cuyahoga Job and Family Services’ Office of Child Support Services (OCSS) in collaboration with Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court will help parents get a fresh start and avoid going to jail by offering a child support warrant recall program every Friday starting January 8, 2016 from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM.

In Cuyahoga County, nearly 3,000 parents have child support bench warrants for failing to appear in court or show up for genetic testing. They can now visit the Juvenile Justice Center located at 9300 Quincy Ave. Cleveland, Ohio 44106, to have those warrants recalled.

To start the process, noncustodial parents must pay a minimum of $50 (cashier’s check, cash or money order) with all payments applied directly to the child support obligation. Parents can then work with the OCSS and the court to have their warrants recalled, not only removing the threat of arrest, but also increasing the parent’s ability to support their children through critical services that help with healthy family relationships as well as job readiness, and employment opportunities.

Available Supportive Services
  • Free genetic testing available
  • Training on how to access child support account online
