Interstate Cases


Your case may become an interstate case when:

  • One party resides in a State or Country outside of the State of Ohio.
  • A court order is in a State or Country other than the one where both parties live.

How the CSEA can assist you:

  • If the location of the out of state parent is unknown, the first step is to locate the absent parent. Information provided by the applicant concerning the possible location of the absent parent is important for starting the interstate process.
  • A valid address is needed for the parent living out of State. The CSEA will verify that address and contact the other state to assist in enforcement of the Child Support Order.

  • To have a complete Interstate Order in place, the process may take 9–12 months or longer.

Laws Governing Interstate Cases

Interstate child support cases are governed by the
