Collecting Child Support From Out-Of State Parents

Approximately one out of every three child support cases involves a parent who lives in another state. Working on cases that cross state lines is not uncommon for FSD or local child support agency`s, and federal legislation exists to support these efforts. By law, state child support enforcement agencies must cooperate with each other in handling requests for assistance. It is not a simple matter for one state to establish and enforce court orders of another state. Each state has an independent court system with varying laws, practices and traditions.
