Transaction Processing

MAXIMUS is a leader in providing transaction processing services to child support programs. From centralized mail and forms processing to new hire records reporting, medical support documents processing, answering calls and e-mails, and beyond – we handle routine administrative tasks so case workers can focus on more complex work that requires their unique skills.

Employer Services

We leverage our corporate Workforce Services expertise to help parents secure meaningful employment critical to family self-sufficiency.

Contact Centers

MAXIMUS has operated child support contact centers since 2004. By handling customer inquiries, we free up case workers to address complex program tasks. We answer customer questions about a range of topics, including child support payments, modifications to child support orders, and medical support for children.

Debt Prevention

The MAXIMUS Debt Prevention Program provides a unique, personal-contact approach that focuses on non-custodial parents and employers to establish a pattern of “payment compliance” that can result in a significant increase in full and on-time payments.

Full Service

Our full-service outsourcing solution is customized to your program’s needs and encompasses full and specialized child support case-management services, including intake, enforcement, order modification and collections.
