A child support services case can be opened by either parent, or a legal guardian, whether or not a child support court order exists. If you already have a court order, opening a case offers neutral assistance with every part of the process, keeps records, and helps both parties stay on track. If you do not have a case, applying for child support means your local child support agency will help you locate the other parent, establish legal paternity/parentage if required, get a court order and see that it is enforced in every state and many foreign countries. To start the process, you have several options:
1. Apply Online
- To apply for services online, click here.
- You will be taken to a secure website where you can enter all the information necessary to complete an application, which will then be automatically routed to the child support agency in your area.
- Please plan to take 30-45 minutes to complete all of the parts of the online application.
*Please note, persons currently receiving CalWORKS (government cash assistance/welfare) are automatically referred to their local child support agency for services. If you are a CalWORKS beneficiary and have questions about your case, please contact your local office.
2. Apply In Person
- To apply in person, download and complete an Application for Child Support Services Packet (found below).
- Then, return it to the child support agency in your area to be processed.
- Applications are also available on a walk-in basis at all county and regional child support offices.
As stated above, if you are receiving CalWORKS (government cash assistance/ welfare), you will automatically be referred to a child support office in your area.
