If you receive a call from either an automated system or a person claiming to be the California Department of Child Support Services (DCSS) or California State Disbursement Unit (SDU), please do not provide your Social Security number or any other personal information.
To verify that any calls you receive related to child Support are authentic, please call your local child support agency at 1-866-901-3212.

  A quick and easy interactive web-based system quides you through the process of opening a new child support case or requesting a review for modification of an existng child support order. TurboCourt provides the option of electronically submitting your forms free of charge.
