SACRAMENTO – The California Department of Child Support Services (DCSS) last week presented awards to the local child support agencies that met or exceeded performance goals during federal fiscal year 2013, including El Dorado County.

“I congratulate each and every one of you for your deep commitment to putting children first,” said Kathleen Hrepich, interim director of DCSS, during the awards ceremony. “I am especially proud of the remarkable accomplishments of agencies we are here to honor today.”

Hrepich presented the special Director’s Excellence Award to two local child support agencies: the Marin County Department of Child Support Services and the Monterey County Department of Child Support Services. For this award, recipient agencies exceeded all federal performance measures and met the state’s measure of increasing total distributed collections by 3 percent or more over the previous year.

The Top Ten Award for top overall performance in the five federal performance measures went to San Luis Obispo, Marin, Plumas, Sonoma, Ventura, El Dorado, Glenn and Lassen counties, as well as the Central Sierra region and the Sierra Nevada region. The Central Sierra Department of Child Support Services is made up of Alpine, Amador, Calaveras and Tuolumne counties.

Three agencies earned the Director’s Challenge Award, by meeting the challenge to increase distributed collections by five percent or more during the prior year. Those were the agencies serving Trinity, Plumas and Marin counties.

The DCSS and the 51 local child support agencies operate the second-largest child support system in the nation with 1.3 million cases in the California Child Support Program. In fiscal year 2013, California’s child support program collected and distributed more than $2.3 billion in child support payments.

    But, I never receive a dime of the 180,000 owed (stolen from my children's future) to my children. I guess your child support order doesn't count when a family member works for the county DA.
