Child Support Services

Our mission is to ensure that children receive the services regarding parentage and financial support to which they are legally entitled.

Different Wants, Different Needs, One Shared Goal

August is Child Support Awareness Month, recognized in California and nationwide. In partnership with the 47 county and regional child support offices, California Child Support Services understands that every co-parent has different wants and needs for their children, but all have the same shared goal: to see those children thrive.
