Child Support Program

Welcome to Lac Courte Oreilles Child Support Program

Our Mission: The Lac Courte Oreilles Child Support Program is dedicated to working in collaboration with all State, National and Tribal agencies and departments to maintain an effective program that will meet the needs of families, improve the welfare of children, and strengthen Tribal sovereignty. We make every effort to strengthen family responsibilities and values through quality service and cultural integrity.

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to enforce the child's right for support (financial, medical, emotional, and cultural) from both parents in order to raise the standard of living for Tribal children.

Program Goals

Our goals are founded in our commitment to families to ensure that paternity is established when appropriate; financial disputes between separated parents are minimized; and parents are held accountable to support their children in accordance with their resources and abilities.

smiONE Tribal Debit Card

The LCO Child Support Program is now providing an easier and safer way to receive and manage your child support payments. The checks our program participants were previously receiving will now be replaced by the smiONE Tribal Debit Card. Starting June 13th all custodial parties with open child support cases with the LCO Child Support Program had been mailed their smiONE Tribal Debit Card to the most current mailing address on file. If you have an open child support case with us and had not received your debit card by June 24th please contact our office to make sure we have your most current mailing address.

The smiONE Tribal Debit Card eliminates the possibility of lost or stolen checks, costly check cashing fees, postal service delays, and can be used anywhere VISA is accepted. It also provides easy access to your child support payments. When you receive your card follow all directions provided to activate your new smiONE Tribal Debit Card.
