Each state in the United States will recognize a valid divorce from each other.  And foreign divorces are given full faith and credit in the US.  Do you mean that you want to register the support in the state of California to make it enforceable?  That is really all you need to do to be able to collect on it.  What you need to do is to contact the Department of Child Services in the County in which you live in in California and ask how they wish you to proceed to register the custody and support orders in order to be able to enforce them as against your ex spouse.  Good luck.
