How We Work Together

Please read and check mark each of the following statements. By check marking each statement, you understand and agree. Once "Next" is selected at the bottom, you will enter the Application Process and an electronic acknowledgment of your understanding will be recorded.

Your Responsibilities

  1. Legal name change, residence/mailing address, telephone or contact numbers, place of employment, or health insurance, or if you know of changes about the other party

  2. If direct payments are made to the custodial party

  3. When a child no longer lives with the custodial party (i.e. marries, is adopted, joins the armed forces or is deceased ...)

  4. If parenting time (visitation) changes for longer than one month

  5. If you retain a private attorney or private collection agency regarding child support, parenting time (visitation) or parental responsibility (custody)

  6. If an action has been filed with a court that CSE was not involved with (i.e. separation, divorce, parental responsibility...)

The provision of your Social Security Number/SSN is mandatory (§ 42 U.S.C. 666(a)(13)). However, if you do not have an SSN, your application for services will not be denied. SSNs are used by the CSE Program to locate individuals to establish paternity or support obligations, modify and enforce support obligations and to distribute child support payments.

Confidentiality laws protect all information provided to CSE. CSE offices throughout the United States and some countries have access to this information through State and Federal Child Support Case Registries. If family/domestic violence is an issue, you must alert CSE to further safeguard this information and an additional order of the court may be needed.
