Out of State Agencies

Information on this web site is intended to assist Out-of-State IV-D agencies in processing their child support enforcement cases. Out-of-State Agencies can benefit from the high-level overview of our county’s child support enforcement program which includes: 

  • Interstate Case Initiation Procedures
  • International/ Hague Convention Case
  • Required Forms and Information
  • Request for certified court orders and payment history
  • Paternity Testing
  • Payment Processing
  • Contacting the Central Case Registry
  • Electronic Document Exchange (EDE)
  • Intergovernmental Reference Guide (IRG)


Paternity Testing

In most cases, the noncustodial parent will be ordered to pay costs for paternity tests. However, in interstate cases, the initiating state pays for the test and seeks reimbursement of the costs by court order. The responding state must attempt to obtain a judgment for the costs of paternity testing and forward any payments received to the initiating state.


Payment Processing

Responding states electing to impose fees or recovery costs for processing support payments may deduct those fees from the support payment. However, the responding state must notify us, the initiating state, of the full amount collected and the amount charged.

For example, if a cost recovery state collects $200 in child support and deducts a $3 fee, that state forwards $197 to California (the initiating state) along with a notice stating that $200 was paid by the noncustodial parent and $3 was retained for processing the payment.

California is not a cost recovery state.


Central Case Registry

The California Central Registry (CCR) serves as the single point for the submission and processing of interstate child support enforcement cases. CCR analysts:

  • Examine all incoming inter-jurisdictional and Hague Convention Cases;
  • Review the documents from other states for completeness;
  • Send the cases to the Department of Child Support Services in the county where the noncustodial parent resides

Maintain an ongoing liaison between the 58 California Department of Child Support Services and the various child support enforcement agencies of the initiating states.
CCR is one of the major functions under the direction of the State Department of Justice. You may contact the California Central Registry at:

Intergovernmental Services Section (IGS) / Central Registry
