In order to provide services, the Office of Child Support Services (OCSS) must know where the non-custodial parent lives and/or works. OCSS will search for the non-custodial parent using our Child Support Management computer system (CSMS). CSMS continuously and automatically searches the database of various government agencies, both state and federal. 

You can help locate the non-custodial parent and speed up the child support process by providing OCSS with as much information as possible about the non-custodial parent such as full name, Social Security Number, current and former addresses, date of birth, and current and/or former employers.
