What's New!

As you read the latest Strategic Plan 2015-2019, please note that DCSS is updating it to feature measurable targets for each objective. The updated version will be posted here in the near future.

Cash paying customers can now pay in person at any MoneyGram location, or at a kiosk at select county child support offices. Learn more about all of our available payment options.

Our entire website went mobile friendly on November 12th. If you are on a laptop or tablet, you can see how it looks, now, by shrinking the window on your screen to the size of a cell phone. This slight change, among others, is included in the new Web template provided to all state departments by the California Department of Technology. We hope these changes enhance your experience on our site. We welcome your feedback.
