Mission Statement

Our Mission

The mission of the Cherokee Nation Office of Child Support Services is to partner with families and other programs to ensure the collaboration of services and resources are in place to build a stable environment for our children that will instill self-sufficiency and wellbeing.

Our goal is to strengthen Cherokee children, families and communities by ensuring a respectful, friendly environment where families can work together for the benefit of their children.

Who We Serve

Cherokee children under the age of majority living within the boundaries of the Cherokee Nation are eligible to receive child support services. A Cherokee child under the age of majority is defined as a person under the age of 20 years old, who have not graduated from high school and is regularly attending public or private school.

We can generally assist any Native American family if they are willing to submit to Cherokee Nation tribal court jurisdiction and reside within our reservation boundaries. The Cherokee Nation Office of Child Support Services will serve the full county in cases where the jurisdictional service area takes in only a portion of the county.
