The Los Angeles County Child Support Services Department is offering direct deposit of child support payments to custodial parents with child support cases in the county.
The new program allows for the direct deposit of child support payments to a bank account of the participating custodial parent. To participate, county residents must request and complete a direct deposit application
Applications can be obtained at any of Child Support Services Department six offices, the Los Angeles County court trustee, or by calling the Child Support Services Department Call Center at (800) 615-8858 or (323) 838-7550.
Direct deposit is a free service for customers designed to eliminate worry about lost or stolen checks and eliminates waiting in line to put checks in the bank.
The Court Trustee is the contract agency that assists the Child Support Services Department with the collection of child support payments.
The department collected $500 million in child support payments last year and has recently become its own department after separating from the district attorney’s office.
