August is Child Support Awareness Month

“Children are the best part of ourselves – the sum of our past and the promise of our future, the guarantee that our lives and values and dreams will flourish long after we are gone.”  With that statement, then President Bill Clinton made an official proclamation in 1995 that recognized the month of August as Child Support Awareness Month.

Our MissionMission and values icon


The mission of the Yolo County Department of Child Support Services is to promote the well-being of children and the self sufficiency of families by assisting both parents to meet the financial and medical needs of their children through the professional establishment and enforcement of child support orders.

Who we Serve

Services are available to you if you are a parent or legal guardian who would like assistance in obtaining or enforcing a child support order, regardless of income level.

Services we Provide

We assist parents in establishing paternity and child support, modifying and enforcing child and medical support orders. We collect and distribute child support to custodial parents. We also provide a full accounting of all child support owed, paid and received. Audits can be provided upon request. If needed we can provide genetic testing to determine paternity or locate services to find parents for the purpose of child support collection.
