Legal Information

Department of Child Support Service’s Attorneys do not represent child support case participants.

Participants may seek advice from an attorney on their own or contact the Shasta County Family Law Facilitator for legal support, including assistance with completing various family law documents.

Most child support issues can be resolved in our local office. However, there are times when a court hearing is necessary. If you have received paperwork indicating you have a court date for child support and have questions, please contact us at 1 (866) 901-3212.

You may be able to attend some court hearings by phone via WebEx. For phone appearance information, visit:
