Welcome to the Office of the Court Trustee
The Office of the Court Trustee is responsible for enforcement of child support in Sedgwick County. The office is divided into two departments.
Please be advised that there is no attorney client relationship created between an obligee or obligor and the Office of the District Court Trustee or its staff. Because we are officers of the court, we are prohibited from providing legal advice to either party. We encourage parties to seek private counsel or they can file pro se motions in the self-help center on the 4th floor of the courthouse.
IV-D Department operates under contract with The Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF) which administers the federal IV-D (child support) program in Kansas. Individuals that participate in this program have additional enforcement tools available to them.
This department is located on the 7th floor (west side) of the Sedgwick County Courthouse.
Hours of operation are Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
(please click the IVD icon for more information)
Non IV-D Department - Any case filed after February 1, 1996 and is not referred under the Federal IV-D program falls under this category. All orders for payment of child support, except temporary orders, are assigned to the Office of the Court Trustee for monitoring and enforcement unless a “good cause exception is granted by the Administrative Judge. There is a 3.5% fee of the support collected used to defray the expenses of operating this department.
This department is located on the 9th floor (east side) of the Sedgwick County Courthouse.
Hours of operation are Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Did you know...
1 in 5 children in the U.S. are served by our program nationwide? That is 14.7 Million children in 2018! Did you know that Child support accounts for about half the average income of low-income parents who receive it,
lifting nearly 3/4 million people out of poverty in 2017*†
