What Are The Time Frames For Dcse To Take Action On A Case?

Time frames vary and each case is different. One of the most important steps that DCSE must take with almost every action is to serve the non­custodial parent with advance notice of the action. This allows the non­custodial parent due process to contest or appeal the action and is a legal requirement. Since many people move frequently and some people deliberately try to avoid being served, this often requires a long time to accomplish.
