Mission: To improve the well-being of children and families by promoting the emotional and financial responsibility between parents and children.

We strive to help custodial parents and non-custodial parents come together and form an agreement that will benefit the child or children. This agreement allows for support payments to be in the form of cash or non-cash (in-kind). By implementing mandatory meetings for the custodial and non-custodial parent to attend we can eliminate the need for a court session. If they can reach an agreement during the mediation session they will not need to proceed to court unless there is a fault in payment. The setting of the mediation meetings are relaxed and not as formal as a court proceeding.

The staff at the CSEU is here to help both the custodial and non-custodial parents throughout the process of applying for child support or with modifying existing orders that are currently in the New York State system. The CSEU became the first comprehensive Tribal Child Support Unit in New York State and all of Region II in April 2014. Also, received special recognition from the Regional Administrator Joyce Thomas and the Commissioner of US Department of Health and Human Services Vicki Turetsky for this accomplishment.
