MISSION STATEMENT

Child Support Services is a department under the Osage Nation Executive Branch. This agency works in partnership with the Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement and other tribal and state agencies.

It is our desire to provide custodial parents the information and tools needed to ensure court-ordered child support payments are made and received in a timely manner.

Osage Nation Child Support Service’s mission is to improve the welfare of children by strengthening family responsibilities.
