Frequently Asked Questions

Who is Eligible?
A parent or person who has physical custody of a child may apply for child support services.
The Jefferson County Attorney charges no fee for these services. 

What Kind of Information Do I Need to Provide to Obtain Child Support?
It is helpful if you can provide the non-custodial parent’s address, social security number, date of birth, employer, bank account numbers, property holdings and investments. Look for this information in old insurance policies, credit card or other applications, state and federal tax returns, hospital records, police records and birth certificates. 

You may be able to get information from the non-custodial parent’s business associates, friends, or relatives. Also, please provide copies of any existing court orders and record of payments. 

What if I Can’t Find the Information and Don’t Know Where the Non-custodial Parent Lives or Works
If you can provide the non-custodial parent’s date of birth, father’s name, and mother’s maiden name, the child support agency may be able to obtain information from the Social Security Administration, the Internal Revenue Service, the Veterans’ Administration, the Department of Defense, the Armed Forces, and/or the Selective Service Administration. 

If you can provide the non-custodial parent’s social security number, the child support agency can obtain information from all state and federal files. Be aware, however, that finding a non-custodial parent through these sources make take several months. 

What if the Non-custodial Parent Lives in Another State?
The same location resources and services are available in all states. Although interstate cases are more difficult and generally take longer, new federal legislation and more computer links between states are improving interstate processing of child support. 

How Can I Find Out More Information About Child Support Services?

What is Paternity and Why is it Important to establish Paternity?
Establishing paternity for a child creates a legal duty to support a child born out of wedlock. Both parents have the duty to support the child. Even when parents are unmarried, they are required to support their child until he/she becomes an adult. By establishing paternity, an unmarried father provides the child with certain rights and privileges, including but not limited to -- financial support, sense of identity, medical history and the right to Social Security benefits, insurance benefits and inheritance rights.
