minimizeFiling Information

There is no charge to use our service to prepare your forms and there is no fee to file with the Los Angeles County Child Support Services Department (CSSD).

By using TurboCourt, you can submit your application on-line to the Los Angeles County Department of Child Support Services. You can choose to receive a confirmation by email or you can login later to check on the status of your application. Once CSSD accepts your forms, you can get and print copies by logging on to TurboCourt

Under location, select “Case Opening Unit” if you wish to open a new case with CSSD. Select “Modification Review Unit” if CSSD is already enforcing a court order in your case and you wish to have the amount of the order changed.

For more information about the services CSSD provides, you may access our website or contact the customer service center by calling (866) 901-3212.

This program will assist you in preparing your forms in order to apply for Child Support Services. Services offered by the Child Support Program include: establishing paternity, obtaining child and medical support orders, enforcing existing court orders, modifying child support orders, locate, and collecting and distributing child support.

Although you can file an application for services in any county, you should apply in the county where you live so that the local Child Support Agency in your county can take all actions that may be appropriate for your case. If you are requesting a modification of a court order on an open child support case, please select the county that manages that case.
