San Luis Obispo Ranks #1 in Child Support Services
San Luis Obispo County is at the top of its game when it comes to child support services, according to a recent report issued to the California Legislature.
For the ninth consecutive year, the California Department of Child Support Services ranked San Luis Obispo County’s child support services agency #1 out of 51 agencies of its kind. The determination is based on five federal performance measures, including the number of cases where paternity has been established; the percentage of cases with a child support order; collections performance; and overall cost effectiveness.
“We work to help strengthen families in San Luis Obispo County, and this award just goes to show that the Department of Child Support Services staff is consistently efficient, hard-working and successful at what we do,” said Child Support Services Director Julie S. Paik.
According to Paik, the department oversees the wellbeing of 3,900 children and families, of which a third to one-half are on assistance.
“Our primary mission is to ensure the self-sufficiency of families in San Luis Obispo County, and now that the economy is improving, our services are improving as well,” she added.
