The Del Norte County Department of Child Support Services is committed to promoting the well being of children and the self-sufficiency of families by delivering first-rate child support services and collection activities that contribute to meeting the financial, medical, and emotional needs of children.

 In the development of our Local Customer Service Plan, Del Norte County Department of Child Support Services has sought the most effective tools and techniques for applying sound customer service principles. Our program addresses the need to better serve you, our customer, in every aspect of the child support program.

The Department of Child Support Services Local customer Service Plan strives to:

  • Provide excellent customer service that results in superior outcomes in attaining federal and state performance standards.
  • Provide an environment that is open and accessible and treats all customers with courtesy and respect.
  • Publicly advocate for the well being of children by broadly communicating the importance of parental responsibility and the availability of child support services.

The Department of Child Support Services is committed to vigorous enforcement of every child's legal right to receive support. Responsibility for support of one's children is a fundamental human obligation. Furthermore, children have a specific legal right to receive child support.

Receipt of child support benefits may enable a welfare recipient to leave the welfare system, or help a non-welfare parent to remain off welfare. In this way, the program not only assists children and parents, it also saves tax dollars.

The overall goals of the Department of Child Support Services are to enforce the laws in this most important area and to provide excellent service to the public.
