The State of California Department of Child Support Services provides child support and paternity services to parents and guardians through local offices throughout the state. The primary services are to establish parentage and child support orders, collect court-ordered support, and modify child support orders when parents’ income or family situation has changed. The Siskiyou Modoc Regional Department of Child Support Services has offices in Yreka and Alturas.
You are welcome to visit the offices in Yreka or Alturas to find out how the agency might help you obtain financial and medical support for the minor children in your care. Or you can ask for help enforcing or changing an existing support order. Parents with support cases managed by a different California county may also come in or call one of the local offices for assistance.
August is Child Support Awareness Month
"On the road of life, their future starts with you."
The mission of the California Child Support Services Program is to enhance the well-being of children and the self-sufficiency of families by providing professional services to locate parents, establish paternity, and establish and enforce orders for financial and medical support. Contact our office for assistance with your case or to open a new case.
