California Child Support Services

The California Department of Child Support Services oversees a network of 47 local child support agencies that provide services to the general public at the county level. Having a case with Child Support Services creates a record of all child support payments, provides a neutral go-between for parents, and can help both parents avoid court and assist with navigating the child support system. Child Support Services staff act in the public interest and do not represent either side of a child support case.
