Domestic Relations

Erie County’s Domestic Relations department serves as the county’s child/spousal support agency.

Domestic Relations, which is supervised by Director Mark Causgrove under the oversight of Court Administration, also works with the other agencies involving cases where children are receiving welfare or where children are no longer in their parents’ custody.

The department, which has 74 employees, also assists dependents who require financial assistance and enforces financial and medical support orders for all qualifying parties.
