The director of Child Support Services for Contra Costa County, Linda Dippel, already found the site useful since its Nov. 13 expansion into her county.
"It lets me know how many cases we have in our caseload," said Dippel, who, among other duties, chases down parents delinquent on child support payments.
"Are we reaching only 10 percent?And should our target be 20 to 30 percent?"Dippel asked.

Linda Dippel, director of Contra Costa's Department of Child Support Services, said increasing the involvement of noncustodial parents was key to cutting delinquency rates.British Columbia, for example, has seen its support payment rates increase steadily in recent years after initiating programs to get fathers more involved.
Contra Costa has 11,218 cases with child support due each month, but it receives payments from only 58 percent of the caseload, said Dippel.In addition, the county has 24,604 cases in arrears.In the past three months, only about 40 percent of those parents made payments.
Statewide, 70 percent of uncollected child support comes from parents with incomes of about $10,000 a year, officials said.And a 2001 survey of unmarried Oakland and San Jose parents showed that 47 percent of new fathers had less than a high school education.

"We realize that there is a perception that government agencies' services are for those on public assistance," stated Linda Dippel, Director. "We want to let the public know that our services are available to all with minor children including individuals with court-ordered child support. Our goal is to ensure consistent, fair support for children. Dippel continued, "Our services are free. We are funded by the state and federal government."
Dippel invites individuals with questions to visit the department's facebook page, web site or to call or visit the office. (Contact information follows.) Dippel states, "Opening a case electronically is easy, secure and free at

Child support is based on the noncustodial parent's ability to pay, so the department keeps track of pay receipts and tax returns to determine whether increases or reductions are warranted, said child support services Director Linda Dippel.
Outreach is one of the agency's top priorities, Dippel said. The department has created a Facebook page and advertises on BART and buses to increase its exposure to people who need services.
"A lot of people aren't aware of the full range of things we do," she said.
About 55 percent of parents pay the entire amount they owe each month and another 10 percent make a partial payment, Dippel said. The department tries hard to find all sources of income, she said.
If parents vanish, the county can tap into federal databases to determine where they are and if they have income, Sweeney said.
The state and federal governments pay the department's bills, not the county. Child support is one of the few county agencies that's getting more money this year, Dippel said. California is adding $460,000 to the department's $19 million budget, she said.
"If you have the child more of the time, you get more support," Dippel said.
