The County of San Luis Obispo Department of Child Support Services (DCSS) primarily assists customers with establishing and enforcing child support orders. When a case is opened with DCSS we locate parents who are obligated to pay support, establish paternity, and obtain child support and health insurance orders.  Once an order is established, DCSS enforces the order and collects and distributes the support owed to families. DCSS is committed to providing timely and professional services, enhancing the well-being of children and families, and helping them remain self-sufficient.
