The Human Services Department mission is: To transform lives. Working with our partners, we design and deliver innovative, high quality health and human services that improve the security and promote independence for New Mexicans in their communities.

Preparing for Court

When you are preparing for a hearing, it is important to bring copies of important documentation with you, such as:

  • Proof of Custody (i.e. school records, court order, etc.)
  • Proof of Income
  • Child Care Receipts
  • Medical Expenses
  • Other Expenses Related to the Child (i.e. extracurricular activities, sports, etc.)

Please remember, CSSD cannot advocate on your behalf. CSSD does not represent the custodial parent or non-custodial parent. If you disagree with the child support decision of CSSD, it is your responsibility to advocate your position to the judge.
