The Child Support Enforcement Program will put children first by helping parents assume responsibility for the economic and social well-being, health and stability of their children. We recognize the value of improved relationships with both parents.
The mission of the Department of Child Support Services is to promote the well-being of children and the self-sufficiency of families by delivering first-rate child support establishment, collection, and distribution services that help both parents meet the financial, medical, and emotional needs of their children.
A child support case is opened by the non-custodial parent or custodial party by completing an application. You can request by phone a packet be sent to you by regular mail or you can come by the office to obtain an application packet.
If you have a divorce or custody or visitation rights procedure, your child support hearings are likely to be held in the main courthouse building of the Superior Court of California for Imperial County, located at:
Imperial County Superior Court
939 W. Main St.
El Centro, California 92243
Because of this, it is recommended that you always check with the court clerk’s office for the building in which your hearing will be held.
Watch how adding an extra $25 to $50 to your usual monthly payment can decrease your balance faster!
The Arrears Estimator is a valuable tool that will allow you to compare how the length of time and total interest paid are affected by differing monthly payment amounts. Just watch how adding an extra $25 to $50 to your usual monthly payment can significantly decrease the total amount you pay in interest, as well as decreasing the amount of time you are making payments on the past due child support owed.
This calculation represents an estimate for paying off past due child support in California. It should not be used for any other purpose. This is only an ESTIMATE!
