The Health Care Authority’s mission is: We ensure that New Mexicans attain their highest level of health by providing whole-person, cost-effective, accessible, and high-quality health care and safety-net services.

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.
