Interstate Action

Interstate actions may be necessary when the assistance of another State's Child Support Agency is needed to successfully establish orders, enforce and/or modify orders. When an Interstate Action is necessary, child support agencies work these cases cooperating under the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA).

How do I know if my case should be an Interstate case?
How long does the process take?
Can I have my support order modified if there are other states involved?
How do I get my Child Support Order enforced if the other party no longer lives in the state that issued the order?
Do I have to use the services of the Child Support Agency that issued my order?
What happens if I have been served to appear at a hearing in another state? Do I have to travel?
What happens if I disagree with the outcome of the hearing results rendered by another state? Can I object?
