Child Support

Child Support Enforcement Automatic DCSS Levy on Father's IRA

The payment of child support is a clear public policy of California. There is simply no safe harbor when the state DCSS seeks to collect child or spousal support arrears. Many of us in the family law field may have been misguided in thinking that individual retirement accounts (IRAs) and other pension plans are exempt from collection. This clearly was the father’s contention when he sought an exemption and later moved for injunctive relief to quash the collection proceedings. Under Family Code 5103, the levy was proper.

Imperial County Child Support Services is top in state for collecting child support

A preliminary report of the federal performance measures for Imperial County Child Support Services shows Imperial County is one of the top collectors of child support in California.
