Federal Parent Locate Services

If a parent owing support cannot be found, the BCSE will work with the Federal government to find the obligor through the Internal Revenue Services (IRS), the Veteran`s Administration (VA), the Social Security Administration, New Hire Registry, Federal Case Registry, and the Department of Defense. This service is also used when there is a dispute regarding the child`s custody or to locate a parent suspected of parental kidnapping. This service must be requested by the court or authorized, by a United States or a West Virginia attorney licensed to investigate, enforce, or prosecute the wrongful taking of a child.
