Yurok Child Support Services (Tribal IV-D)


Our Program

The Yurok Tribe was awarded a Child Support Planning Grant to set up its own Tribal Child Support Program with its own respective child support laws, and policies and procedures to operate the program. We anticipate that the program will be providing direct services in late 2013.

The Program will offer the following services: locating non-custodial and custodial parents, establishing paternity by voluntary declaration or court order, establishing child support orders, providing a non-cash alternative for child support payments, petitioning the Yurok Tribal Court to issue orders for Yurok Reservation employers to withhold wages, collecting and processing child support payments, and extinguishing 90% of past due child support debt owed to the State of California (specific eligibility criteria).

For more information please contact Denise Bareilles, Yurok Child Support Services Staff Attorney at (707) 269-0695 or
