When the court issues a child support order, it is expected that each parent will abide by the terms and make all required payments. Failure to do so deprives the children of essential financial support and is a violation of the divorce agreement. If your former spouse has stopped making child support payments, you may be eligible to receive assistance from the California Department of Child Support Services (DCSS).
There are specific processes that need to be followed in order to receive services from the DCSS, and the assistance of an experienced attorney can help to ensure that the entire process goes smoothly. At Contreras Law Firm, we can help you navigate the DCSS process and help you obtain the services you deserve.
California Department Of Child Support Services
The California Department of Child Support Services was put into place to ensure that children and their parents receive the court-ordered support they deserve. It becomes more expensive to raise a child each year, and both parents should be held accountable for these costs. The DCSS works with many different state agencies to help families resolve nonpayment issues.
The Department of Child Support Services provides many different vital services for parents, including:
- Locating delinquent parents
- Establishing paternity
- Establishing, maintaining and enforcing child support orders
- Working with other state agencies to ensure the enforcement of California child support orders
- Collecting and processing payments
