Locate Parents

We use many sources of information to try to find where a parent lives or works including:

  • Public Assistance and Food Stamp records
  • Motor vehicle registration and driver license records
  • Department of Corrections records
  • United States Postal Service
  • Current and previous employers
  • Quarterly wage and reemployment assistance (formerly unemployment compensation) claims data
  • Law enforcement agencies, parole and probation offices
  • Utility companies
  • Business, professional and recreational licenses

It is important that you share information with us. Helpful information includes:

  • Full name and other names that may be used
  • Last known address and/or phone number
  • Last known employer name, address and phone number and the kind of work they do/did
  • Social Security number
  • Date and place of birth
  • Relatives’ names and addresses
  • Military records
  • Assets (home, business, cars, boats, etc.)

When we find the parent, we can move forward with establishing or enforcing a child support order.
