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.
