Law governs state-to-state child support activity
In some child support cases, the parent ordered to pay support lives in one state while the custodial parent and child live in another. In these cases, the Clark County Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA) works with another state’s child support agency to establish, enforce or modify a child support order. Such interstate actions operate under the authority of the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA).
Federal law mandates all states to adopt uniform rules. Child support agencies across the nation use a structured set of rules to determine which state in a particular case has jurisdiction.
For specific information, please contact your local county CSEA (Clark County 937-327-1700) or the state or county that issued your support order.
