The Alabama Department of Human Resources’ Child Support Enforcement division (CSE, or the federal designation, IV-D) helps families establish paternity (when necessary), obtain orders for payment of child support, and secure compliance with court orders for child support.
Many adoptions and foster care arrangements in Alabama are made through the DHR’s adoptions division.
Additional Alabama DHR Family Services include:
- Foster Care. Currently in Alabama, there are more than 5,000 children in foster care. Some simply need foster care for a matter of days. Others may need foster care until they are reunited with their biological family or they can be adopted. Each child needs a caring and committed family that can bring them the future they deserve. Families 4 Alabama’s Kids is the DHR’s recruitment and retention program that works statewide to recruit adoptive and foster parents.
- Alabama Fatherhood Initiative. The Fatherhood Initiative was developed to strengthen families, enhance child support collections, and address other needs of children who are growing up without the involvement of biological fathers in their lives.
- Child Care Services. In addition to responsibility for licensing Child Care Centers in Alabama, the Office of Child Care Services administers a subsidized child care program to provide Alabama’s low- and moderate-income families equal access to affordable and quality child care as they participate in work, educational, or training activities.
- Adult Protective Services. This office investigates reports of suspected abuse, neglect, or exploitation of adults 18 years of age or older who are unable to protect themselves due to mental or physical disabilities or advanced age. Adult Protective Services also helps adults live independently within their own communities to prevent unnecessary institutionalization.
