Interstate Cases

Your case may become an interstate case when:
  • One party resides in a State or Country outside of the State of Ohio.
  • When a court order is in a State or Country other than the one where both parties live.

How the OCSS can assist you:
  • A valid address is needed for the parent living out of State. The OCSS will verify that address and contact the other state to assist in enforcement of the child Support Order.
  • If the location of the out of state parent is unknown, the first step is to locate the parent. This depends upon how much information is provided by the applicant requesting our services. This step can take 3 - 6 months or longer.
  • To have a complete Interstate Order in place, the process may take 9 -12 months or longer.

Laws governing interstate cases
Interstate child support cases are governed by the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA)

CSEA UIFSA (Uniform Interstate Family Support Act)
