The Financial Services Section protects Missourians by recovering money owed to the state. The Section helps collect money owed to other Divisions of the Attorney General’s office and more than 40 other state agencies for a variety of reasons ranging from violations of consumer protection laws, to past-due student loans, to Medicaid reimbursement.
Our child support attorneys assist Missouri’s Family Support Division to provide a wide range of child support services on behalf of the whole family. This work involves establishing, enforcing and modifying child support obligations through the courts. Our attorneys work diligently to ensure children receive the right amount of support. We strive to provide professional and courteous service to all Missourians impacted by the child support enforcement program.
