Our mission

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.
