FINDING NON-PAYING PARENTS
“I haven’t heard form him since the summer of 2002. That’s when I got a postcard in the mail from his sister in San Francisco, CA saying, “Bob sayshhi.” Well, lo and behold, U.S. Attorney confirmed Bob was, indeed, in San Francisco, CA, in the summer of 2002; it is a fact. And most recently, according to the U.S Attorney, he was in Chicago, which is right by his mother’s house.” – Janet, mother of Julie and Mark who are owed $50,000 in back child support
STATE IV-D CHILD SUPPORT AGENCY

TYPES OF LOCATE SERVICES

The FPLS uses the most current information that is available from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS); Social Security Administration (SSA); National Personnel Records Center (NPRC); Department of Defense (DOD); Department of Veteran’s Affairs (DVA); Selective Service System (SSS); and State Employment Security Agencies (SESA). The information from the SESA is updated quarterly.
- State Parent Locator Service (SPLS) checks the non-paying parent’s social security number and name with the records of the following state offices: Employment; Motor Vehicles; Welfare; Worker’s Compensation; Taxation; State Employees, Corrections and Probation, and some states access credit bureau records. The State Parent Locator can provide addresses, employers, and information about unemployment and/or worker’s compensation benefits.
