What you need to know:

California’s child support program made some important changes that makes it easier for families to get their support payments and gives parents who pay support more payment options. If you are a family receiving support payments, a parent making support payments, or an employer garnishing an employee’s wages on behalf of a child support agency, there is information available to help you utilize and access the State Disbursement Unit (SDU), their services, and their website.
