August is Child Awareness Month

August is Child Awareness Month August is Child Support Awareness Month serving to remind parents that providing child support is one of the many ways they demonstrate love for their children.

The California Department of Child Support Services (DCSS) is commemorating the month by recognizing California’s 51 local child support agencies in counties across the state, as well as the courts that collectively provide the services necessary to help children get the financial and medical support they are entitled to in a fair and consistent manner statewide.

“Our mission is to collect money owed to families so that children have the security and support they need, but we recognize that some parents face challenges to making their child support payments including under-employment, re-entry after incarceration, or other challenges. Local child support agencies, through partnerships, can play an important role for parents trying to be successful in making consistent child support payments,” said Kathleen Hrepich, Interim Director of DCSS.

In support of Child Support Awareness Month Sutter and Yuba Counties partnered with the Cinemark Theater to create a Public Service Announcement regarding our services:

Arrears Estimator
Watch how adding an extra $25 to $50 to your usual monthly payment can decrease your balance faster!

The Arrears Estimator is a valuable tool that will allow you to compare how the length of time and total interest paid are affected by differing monthly payment amounts. Just watch how adding an extra $25 to $50 to your usual monthly payment can significantly decrease the total amount you pay in interest, as well as decreasing the amount of time you are making payments on the past due child support owed. You also have the option of entering the number of months in which you would like to have your balances paid off. By entering the number of months, the estimator will determine what the monthly payment needs to be to make this happen.

This calculation represents an estimate for paying off past due child support in California. It should not be used for any other purpose. This is only an ESTIMATE!
