What if the non-custodial parent has left the State?

If you know the state where the non­custodial parent has moved, CSED can contact the Child Support Enforcement Agency in the other state and determine if the parent has indeed moved to that state. If there is a confirmation, the case can be transferred to the other state. If you are not certain of the state where the non­custodial parent has moved, CSED can send a request to the Federal Parent Locator Service (FPLS). The FPLS has access to a number of records such as: The Department of Defense, the National Personnel Records Center, and the Social Security Administration to name a few. Beginning October 1, 1997, States began reporting newly hired employees to a National Directory of New Hires ­ which is now a part of the FPLS.
