Debt Reduction Program

The Debt Reduction Program provides eligible parents with past-due child support payments the opportunity to reduce the amount they owe to the government. This debt, called "arrears", is owed to the government if your dependent children received public assistance (welfare) or were in foster care while you were not paying court-ordered child support.

Tehama County Child Support Services has staff that will be your partner in providing guidance throughout the application process.

How to Apply:

Call or visit Tehama County Child Support Services and ask for an application and return it by mail or in person.
