Free child support hotline for prisoners

Prisoners may call the non-confidential free-call child support hotline.

Prisoners may call the non-confidential free-call child support hotline. Dial *#08. This line is serviced by the Child Support Incarcerated Customers Team (CSIT) within the Child Support section of Department of Human Services. The service assists both child support payers and recipients. It is likely that many calls by prisoners can be sorted out by calling CSIT first.
