Q) What does the child support agency need to know?
A) When you apply for child support services, the child support agency will need to know certain information about you, the other parent, and your child(ren). This may include:
- Your full name, address, phone number, and social security number
- The other parent’s full name, address, phone number, and social security number
- Information about your child(ren), including their names, birth dates, and social security numbers
- Documentation of paternity, if necessary
- Any existing court orders related to child support, custody, or visitation
- Information about the other parent’s income, including pay stubs or tax returns
- Information about any public assistance programs you or the other parent are receiving
- Information about any health insurance coverage for your child(ren)
Providing as much accurate information as possible will help the child support agency locate the other parent, establish paternity if necessary, and determine the appropriate amount of child support.
