Due to poor air quality, our Main office at 617 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA will be closed tomorrow, Friday 11/16/18, at 4:00pm. Please plan your visit accordingly. We will resume normal business hours on Monday, 11/19/2018. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
POTENTIAL FRAUD ALERT: The Department of Child Support Services (DCSS) has been informed of a child support scam taking place under the title, “Clear Your Child Support”. Individuals are attempting to scam child support payers by guaranteeing the reduction of their child support arrears if the payer provides a cash portion in advance. These individuals are then advising the payer’s that their child support arrears would then be negotiated to a lower amount with their child support agency.
This is a scam and individuals contacted by this fraudulent program are encouraged to contact their local law enforcement agency or their attorney general.
Pay at our office using our kiosk. A new kiosk is now available for cash and credit/debit card payments at our office Monday-Friday 8:00am-5:00pm. Any child support payment amount submitted above the amount due will be credited to the customer’s account according to State allocation requirements.
Customer Connect has new features to make it easier to manage your case. Electronically receive payment information, appointment information, and select documents. Enroll in eCommunications to receive notifications directly to your email.
