The Child Support Agency has many tools to find the non-custodial parent. If he or she is in another state, the Child Support Program can access other state and national databases to help find the parent.

Important information that could help us locate the other parent:

  • Full name and other names that may be used
  • Last known address and phone number
  • Last known work address, phone number, and the kind of work they do/did
  • Social Security Number
  • Birth Date
  • Mother’s maiden name
  • Relatives’ names and addresses
  • Whether the parent has any children by another person, and where they live
  • Whether the parent belongs to a union, a social club or sports club, or other memberships and activities
  • Whether the parent has a driver’s license from Wisconsin or another state
  • Whether the parent owns a vehicle, and it is registered in Wisconsin
  • The license plate number of the parent’s car

It is important to present any records you may have. Records that are helpful include birth certificates, marriage certificate or divorce papers. Any financial information will also help, including bank accounts, copies of stocks, bonds, pension information, tax filings, and insurance papers. The more information you can present, the easier it will be to locate the parent. Once he or she is found, the process for child support continues.
