CHILD SUPPORT SERVICES

Child Support Services provides services mandated by Title IV-D of the Social Security Act. The department is operated by the County, administered by the State Department of Child Support Services, and provides services to all families regardless of their economic situation. The program works with parents and guardians to ensure children and families receive courtordered financial and medical support. Services include locating a parent; establishing paternity; establishing, modifying and enforcing a court order for child support; and establishing, modifying and enforcing an order for health coverage. The department helps recoup partial welfare costs for the County and State through this collection activity. Since 2002, the counties of Santa Cruz and San Benito have operated a regional department of Child Support Services, with Santa Cruz acting as the lead agency.
