Ask The Child detectiveSupport Expert –

Question: My daughter keeps getting told that the state won’t help her because she doesn’t have the fathers Social Security number. In the past, she has given them the location of work and home – phone numbers – family contacts but still nothing. Is this going to be the case everywhere – that if she doesn’t have his SS# then there is nothing that can be done?  –   Charlie S., MN

Answer: It is the state government child support agency’s responsibility to obtain the Social Security number from the Social Security Administration if they need it. Also, Social Security numbers are on divorce decrees (since 1997), insurance cards and policies, etc.. But it does not sound like they may need it since she has provided his address and employer in the past to the government child support agency. Your daughter should write a letter to the local child support agency’s supervisor asking for them to:

1. Follow up on the information she has already provided, and if he is still employed at that location to attach his wages for current and back support.

2. If he no longer work’s there, ask them to obtain his Social Security number and use it to access the State Parent Locator System to find his current employer and sources of income so that they can be attached to collect current and back child support. Or if, no assets are found he should be served with a legal notice for a contempt of court hearing and be brought before the judge to enforce the child support order.
