Welcome to the homepage of Pennsylvania's E-Services! E-Services allows you to electronically submit requests for a variety of support services. E-Services uses a series of questions to complete documents to be forwarded to your county Domestic Relations Section (DRS). Requests for support services can be used by parents, caretakers/custodians, or attorneys who want to:

  • Receive child support and/or spousal support;
  • Pay child support and/or spousal support;
  • Modify an existing child and/or spousal support order;
  • Recover an overpayment; or,
  • Withdraw a complaint.

Submitting an online request does not constitute a filing with your county court. Documents are not officially filed until they are reviewed and accepted by the DRS. Each county DRS reviews forms submitted electronically according to office business practices.The county DRS may require additional information to process documents submitted online. Contact your county DRS for more information.

Support Services Description
New Application for Support Your responses to demographic, employment, marital and other questions will be used to complete the forms required for a new application and provide necessary information to Domestic Relations Section (DRS) staff.
Petition for Modification Allows you to request a change to your active or suspended support order if there is a change in circumstances such as an increase or loss of income or a change in family size.
Petition for Recovery of Overpayment Allows you to request overpayment recovery on active and closed cases.
Withdrawal of Complaint Allows you to cancel a pending complaint for support that has recently been submitted. This option does not allow for other actions such as terminating an existing order, cancelling a pending petition for modification, or cancelling a scheduled contempt proceeding.
The request for support services performs best when using Microsoft Internet Explorer 9, Mozilla Firefox 20, Google Chrome 26, or Apple Safari 5.1
