Information on Child Support Cases

For information on Child Support Cases please visit the Department of Child Support Services Website at:

Effective July 1, 2002, the Orange County District Attorney Family Support Division (DA/FSD) became a new and separate County department known as the Orange County Department of Child Support Services (CSS).  This change was mandated by the enactment of AB 196 and SB 542 on September 24, 1999.

Along with the name, organizational reporting responsibility was changed.   The services previously offered by the DA/FSD, including the location of missing parent(s), the establishment of paternity, the establishment of child support and medical support orders, and the enforcement of those orders are now provided by the Department of Child Support Services.

Please direct your child support inquiries directly to the Department of Child Support Services by email at or by telephone at (866) 901-3212.
