In order to establish or enforce a child support order, DCSS must know where to find the parent responsible for support. The applicant is our best resource in attempting to locate the non-custodial parent (NCP).
DCSS will attempt to locate the NCP anywhere in the United States. This includes the use of automated locate resources, such as searching the files of the: Division of Motor Vehicle, Department of Labor, Internet, Office of Vital Statistics, and Federal Parent Locator Service. DCSS can also check information that employers report about new hires.
To use the locator service, the custodial parent (CP) must be able to provide the NCP's:
The more information provided on the NCP, the greater the chances of successfully locating them. Anytime information is received about an NCP, please contact DCSS to provide a case update.
