First, parents should fill out the application for support completely, so that Child Support Services has all the information they need. If a parent currently has a support agreement in place, Child Support Services should be notified of this. It is also helpful for the custodial parent to provide Child Support Services with a monthly record of any payments that the noncustodial parent gave the custodial parent for child support.
It is also important for the parent seeking help from Child Support Services to notify Child Support Services of the times when the child is in the custody of the other parent. If the custodial parent’s address has changed, Child Support Services should be notified of this. Similarly, if the noncustodial parent’s employment or address has changed, Child Support Services should be notified of that as well.
Child Support Services will also need the Social Security number of the noncustodial parents. A list of any trade unions or professional organizations of which the noncustodial parent is a part, along with his or her hobbies, is also important. Finally, it is important to promptly respond to any request Child Support Services makes for further information.
By working with Child Support Services, custodial parents in Oklahoma may be able to seek the child support payments they need to raise their children. If a parent seeking child support does not cooperate with Child Support Services, it is possible that his or her case may be closed. Therefore, it is important for parents pursuing child support to cooperate fully with Child Support Services and provide Child Support Services with all necessary information.
