 What's New!

San Diego Child Support Services Has Moved

Beginning January 1, 2017 children who were considered Maximum Family Grant (MFG), or a child born on or after January 1, 2017 will be eligible for CalWORKs cash aid.

Families who were receiving child support for a child who was previously denied cash aid because of the MFG rule may see some changes to the child support received when the child becomes eligible for cash aid on January 1, 2017.

If you have questions or concerns regarding potential impacts to your child support case, contact your. local child support agency.

Check us out on social media! Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

The new streamlined online application takes about 20 minutes or more depending on the services you seek. You can start now and finish later, up to 60 days from when you start your application. A VIOLA video shows you how.
