Child Support Services Cases in San Diego

Reach Out to a San Diego Divorce Lawyer Today

The California Department of Child Support Services (DCSS) is an agency that is charged with ensuring that children receive court-ordered child support and medical care. The DCSS can also become involved if there are issues with parental abuse, visitation, or neglect. They are also often called upon by the court to ensure or testify as to the wellbeing of a child.

While the DCSS can assist you in ensuring that your child support is received each month, they cannot represent you in a court of law. At Fair Cadora, APC, our San Diego divorce attorneys have decades of experience in cases involving the DCSS and have the knowledge necessary to increase your chances of a positive outcome.

  • Our firm can work with the DCSS to assist you in the following areas:

  • Paternity determination

  • Genetic testing

  • Health insurance enforcement

  • Servicemembers Civil Relief Act

  • Enforcement of a child support order

Visitation & Custody

The County of San Diego Department of Child Support Services has the federal authority to assist in establishing parental visitation and custody orders. Parenting time orders can only be put into place by the DCSS if both parties consent, yet if no agreement can be made, the DCSS will be asked to become involved in future court proceedings.

We’re Here To Help!

Because the DCSS is a federal entity, getting into contact with them to discuss your custody agreement or child support can be difficult. An experienced family law attorney on your side can be a valuable tool to obtaining a positive outcome for your case. At Fair Cadora, APC, our compassionate San Diego divorce attorneys are well-versed in this process, and may be able to help alleviate the stress and anxiety that comes with dealing with the DCSS.

Real Client Testimonials

“She is not afraid to go toe to toe in the court room against opposing counsel and she made my ex and her counsel look vastly unprepared and downright foolish at times. Lauren paid attention to every detail and worked hard to keep costs down in what I would consider a high conflict divorce. Lauren is extremely trustworthy, so much I trusted her to represent me in court even while I was deployed overseas, which speaks volumes about her character.”
