You must contact our office if you have a change of address, telephone number, change of employment or change of residency of the child / children for whom support is owed. You must keep us informed of new information regarding the non-custodial parent. You may contact our Administrative Assistant for all general questions, updates and paperwork.

The length of time to process your case varies depending on the information we have been provided and the type of actions required. Delays can occur if the non-custodial parent lives out of state or if the non-custodial parent cannot be located or served by the Sheriff. Processing a case fully through the court system can take several months. Your case is very important to us, but we request your patience and cooperation throughout the process.
