Helping You Navigate Complex DCSS Processes

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 for assistance from the California Department of Child Support Services (DCSS).

Specific processes must be followed to receive services from the DCSS, and the assistance of an experienced attorney can help ensure that the entire process goes smoothly. At Contreras Law Firm in San Diego, we can help you navigate the DCSS process and obtain the services you deserve.

California Department Of Child Support Services

It is difficult to raise a child when a parent who has been ordered to pay support fails to do so. Lacking that income can dramatically impact your ability to provide for your children, which will require you to reach out to DCSS.

The Department of Child Support Services provides many vital services for parents, including:

  • Locating delinquent parents
  • Establishing paternity
  • Establishing, maintaining and enforcing child support orders
  • Working with other state agencies to ensure enforcement of California child support orders
  • Collecting and processing payments

If your child is owed back child support, do not wait any longer before taking steps to correct the problem. The attorneys at Contreras Law Firm will be there with you at every step, working to ensure that your child receives his or her court-ordered support as quickly as possible.

From completing the initial application packet to addressing any issues that arise throughout the process, our lawyers will pursue every available option in an effort to resolve your case. We will work hard to ensure that you receive the child support payments you deserve.
