Under Federal law, the California Department of Child Support Services is required to charge a yearly $25 service fee for certain cases. If the fee applies to you, you will receive an “Annual Service Fee Assessment Notice” in October for each case for which the fee applies. The fee is only charged on child support cases that meet all of the following conditions:

· The family receiving child support payments has never received government assistance benefits such as; Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), Tribal TANF, CalWorks or Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) AND

· The parent receiving support has received $500 or more in child support payments during the previous federal fiscal year (October 1 through September 30) AND

· The parent receiving child support has not already paid a child support annual fee in another state.
