Child Support - Locating Parents
If the child support agency does not know where a parent lives or works, the child support agency can gather information from many places including:
Some information available from Minnesota government agencies includes:
The Federal Case Registry (FCR) contains state child support case data and serves as a pointer system to help locate persons across state lines. Person data in the FCR are matched daily against quarterly wage information and unemployment insurance records submitted by each state with the National Directory of New Hire Reporting.
Federal law requires all employers report information about newly hired and rehired employees. Employers report the information to one state. Each state then reports the information to the National Directory of New Hire Reporting.
