Do you know someone who needs our services but can't communicate in English or Spanish? If they contact Child Support by telephone or in person and tell us what language they speak, we can help them -- with translation assistance from our language line. Through this contracted service, we have access to 200 different languages, and we'll do our best to reach across any barriers to provide assistance in DNA testing, parent location, and/or establishing court orders for financial and medical support. And if you speak English or Spanish, our fully bilingual staff is always ready to assist you, without the need of translation. We hope to work with you to make a difference in the life of your child.
