Locating Parents
The whereabouts of the non-custodial parent must be known to establish paternity, or to establish and enforce a child and medical support order.

Washington County CSEA utilizes many resources for locating the non-custodial parent. The Support Enforcement Tracking System (SETS), is utilized to automatically initiate location efforts when the non-custodial parents employment or address is invalid and a valid Social Security number and date of birth is on file. The system interfaces with state and federal agencies such as: New Hire, Unemployment, Social Security, Department of Defense, Veterans Affairs, IRS, Bureau of Workers Compensation, Department of Motor vehicles, to receive and process locate information.

Locating the non-custodial parent can be a lengthy process if the non-custodial parent is not employed. Our office also relies on the custodial parents, who typically has information that is helpful for locating non-custodial parents. Custodial parents should keep the CSEA informed of any information that would help locate the non-custodial parent.
