California Child Support Automation System (CCSAS)

In 2008, DCSS successfully completed the statewide transition of California's 51 county and regional child support agencies to the new single statewide child support automation system. Federal laws enacted in 1988 and 1996 required all states to put statewide child support systems in place and establish a single state location for processing all child support collections and disbursements.

The California Child Support Automation System (CCSAS) combines statewide case management capabilities with centralized child support collection and payment processing through the State Disbursement Unit (SDU).
