How can I go about locating the other parent?
To establish, modify, or enforce a support order, the child support agency must have a current address or employment information for the other parent. If the location of a parent is not known, the child support agency uses many tools to locate the address and employer of the other parent.

Social security numbers help the child support agency locate addresses and employment information. Social security numbers are shown on tax returns, pay stubs, and bank statements. Providing this useful information helps the child support agency carry out its duties more efficiently.
