WHEREAS, California’s child support program provides an important opportunity for parents to be a positive force in the lives of their children. In 2020, California had a caseload of 1,100,000 child support cases and served over 2,000,000 children; and
WHEREAS, California is a national leader in the amount of child support collected from parents, distributing more than $2,500,000,000 in child support payments in 2020; and
WHEREAS, Child Support Awareness Month celebrates California’s nationally recognized record of providing services for parents and their children; and
WHEREAS, Increasing public awareness of the importance of this issue through education and outreach will reinforce the need for all parents to take responsibility for the financial, emotional, and physical support of their children; and
WHEREAS, Awareness of the needs of children and the responsibilities of parents to provide for the support of their children benefits all Californians; and
WHEREAS, As Californians, we must rededicate ourselves to the task of putting our youngest and most vulnerable citizens first; now, therefore, be it
