County agencies assist with child support logistics

Most parents in California understand that even if they are no longer in a relationship with one another they are both still responsible for the well-being of their child. Many times this means that one parent will have custody of the child and the other parent will have visitation and pay child support. In California, each county has a local child support agency, or LCSA. The role of the LCSA is to help California residents establish and enforce child support orders issued by the courts.

The LCSA can provide a variety of services. It can establish parentage of the child, locate parents who must pay child support or open new child support cases. If a parent needs court medical support orders, the LCSA can help with that. The LCSA can also enforce or modify existing child support orders.

However, there are certain services the LCSA cannot provide to individuals in California. The LCSA cannot help residents with their divorce. The LCSA also does not handle child custody or visitation. The LCSA cannot issue or enforce a restraining order. It also cannot establish alimony or enforce an order for alimony.

The LCSA provides very valuable services to residents of California, but they cannot provide legal advice on this complicated issues. Getting the right information can help with divorce legal issues unrelated to child support, both in court and with the LCSA. In the end, it is important not only that the custodial parent receives the financial resources needed to raise the child, but also that the child's best interests are taken care of.
