Creating a better life for your child.

As a service agency committed to excellence, the Kern County Department of Child Support Services provides quality child support services to parents for the care and well-being of their children. Each day we establish parentage, locate absent parents, establish and enforce orders for child and medical support, and collect payments. Research has shown that when parents can rely on monthly child support payments, positive outcomes for children increase. To meet this objective, we also believe in establishing partnerships with parents and communities to help us carry out our mission of helping families become self-sufficient by ensuring parents can rely on receiving monthly child support payments.

Child support payments help provide:

  • Food
  • Shelter
  • Clothing
  • School Supplies
  • Transportation
  • Activities
  • Medical/Dental
  • Education
