To cooperate means you must provide any information or documents needed by the FSD or local child support agency to establish paternity and/or locate the other parent, and to get support payments for your child. If you are receiving CalWORKS and/or MediCal and you do not cooperate with the FSD or local child support agency, you must have good cause for not doing so. Good cause means you must have a legally acceptable reason for not cooperating with the FSD or local child support agency such as the probability of physical or emotional harm to you or your children.
