Child Support Services (CSS)

Welcome to Napa County Department of CSS!


Our mission is to enhance the well-being of children and the self-sufficiency of families by providing professional services.

The purpose of the CSS program is to assist families to become and/or remain self-sufficient. Napa CSS takes a holistic approach to providing comprehensive and outstanding customer service. Our goal is to facilitate services that will support the individual and/or family unit to achieve or sustain a healthy family/home environment for the child(ren).  

We go beyond establishing and enforcing orders. Our website has been carefully designed to help you. Please visit our Popular Service listings to quickly find other community services. If you cannot readily find the services you need, please contact our office. We welcome your inquiries and feedback. 

Questions/Concerns Regarding Services

Every Local Child Support Agency (LCSA) has a designated Ombudsperson whose responsibility it is to ensure you receive the highest level of service throughout the State of California. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the services you have received, please contact us by email and you will be in direct contact with the Napa Ombudsperson who can also help you with our Complaint Resolution Program. You may also call any LCSA and ask about the ombudsperson program at our statewide toll-free number at 1-866-901-3212.
